The Ebonised Platter

we hope that you can join us!

Emma is a registered professional woodturner in the UK, having over 20 years of experience in the craft. She began turning at the age of 16 and soon realised she wanted to turn her new hobby into a career. After graduating from university where she attained a BA(Hons) in Performance Design, she launched her brand ‘The Tiny Turner’.

Since then, Emma has become a popular demonstrator throughout the UK, branching out into America over the last couple of years via remote demonstrations. She also runs a successful YouTube channel hosting regular livestreams and providing project tutorials; and has build an online shop via her website that sells all sorts of things for woodturners.

Emma is also a skilled wood carver and enjoys combining both crafts to create some truly unique items.

In this session, Emma covers:

  • What wood is good… for turning Platters and Bowls?
  • Turning a platter using a traditional grind bowl gouge
  • Looking at proportions for platter layouts
  • Ebonising: the pros and cons of the different techniques available
  • Adding leather cord as an embellishment
