Woodturning Demonstration with Charles Farrar

Mint Museum UPTOWN

Sunday, Jun 17

1:00PM - 3:00PM

Admission: FREE for children and Mint Members. Half-price admission for Adults, as part of Sunday Fun Day

As part of the family-friendly Sunday Fun Day, noted area artist Charles Farrar will demonstrate woodturning on a lathe. Farrar, whose wood vessels are exhibited nationally, travels frequently to demonstrate and lead workshops for other woodturners. Known for his unique surface treatments, Farrar says he is reminded of his ancestors when he embellishes the surface of a piece. He notes that while Sub-Saharan Africans were master carvers, it was the Egyptians in North Africa who gave the world the process of
turning wood using a lathe as early as the time of the great pyramids.
