John  Jordan
Badger Woodturners presents
John Jordan
Saturday, April 23, 2016:  Demo and Discussion
April 24 & 25:  Hands-On Workshops 
John Jordan has supported his family for twenty-five years as a woodturner, from Cane Ridge TN, putting his two children through college.  John is known for his textured and carved hollow vessels.  His work has received numerous awards and is in the permanent collections of many museums including the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian, the White House in Washington DC, and the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England.
John sums up his teaching philosophy, “My emphasis is on teaching techniques for producing work that involve using simple tools and methods, to gain complete understanding of material and tools, along with control and finesse. This approach is preferable to complex methods and brute strength.”
John has demonstrated in at least forty states for clubs, universities, woodworking shows, and art shows. He has made multiple teaching trips to England, France, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, and Australia.
  • Saturday Demo:   John will demonstrate his hollow form turning carving and texturing techniques.  In addition he will discuss safety, lathe maintenance, tool sharpening, wood and tool selection. Lunch will be provided.
  •   Sunday Workshop:  Bowl and hollow form turning.  Students need to have basic turning and sharpening skills.  Blanks will be provided for each student to practice bowl and hollow form turning techniques.  Lunch will be provided.
  •     Monday Workshop:  Hollow form turning, carving, and texturing.  Students need to have basic turning skills.  Blanks will be provided for each student to turn a hollow form and practice embellishment techniques.   Lunch will be provided.
