L'atelier en détail

  • 4h
  • 1 à 2 participants
  • 15 ans min.
  • Step into the world of woodturning with Max and create your very own bowl or platter! In this workshop, you will learn how to use a woodturning lathe and gouges to transform a piece of local wood from the Kempen region into a beautiful and functional piece of art.

    Max has two woodturning lathe models (small and large) and you'll have the opportunity to use both during the workshop. With Max's guidance and expertise, you'll learn the techniques needed to turn your piece of wood into a stunning bowl or platter.

    You will choose the shape of your bowl or platter and design them while turning. When you are happy with the shape only a quick sanding is needed to finish your creation. At the end of the day you take your very own woodturned creation home! You'll also learn about the importance of conservation and how to care for your new wooden creation.

    Throughout the workshop, Max will provide water and tea to keep you refreshed and energised. In the summer the big door of the workshop can be opened to let in the sunshine and in the winter a little stove will create warmth inside the shop.

    Join us for a memorable experience that combines creativity and craftsmanship, and take home a beautiful piece of locally-sourced wood to treasure for years to come!

    Wood turner

    Meet Max, the artist whose passion for design and creativity has led him to create unique pieces of art that showcase the natural beauty of local wood species.

    Max's workshops are a testament to his commitment to sustainability and ecology. Each piece he creates is made from trees in the province of Antwerp that were either blown down or removed for other reasons, giving them a second life.

    Through his creations, Max offers a small oasis of tranquillity in our hectic society, inviting us to contemplate and enjoy the little things in life.

    But that's not all. Max also offers workshops in wood turning, where you can create your very own vase, bowl, or candle holder. These workshops take place in an outdoor workspace, featuring two woodturning machines. And to keep you refreshed during the workshops, tea and water are readily available.

    In the winter, the workshop can get chilly, but don't worry - Max has got you covered. He's installed a small fire pit to keep you warm and cosy while you work on your project.

    Join Max and discover the beauty and creativity of woodworking.

    IK heb genoten van de namiddag draaien. Hoewel ik al enkele jaren ervaring had met houtdraaien (heb er wel enkele jaren tussenuit geweest) was deze workshop voor mij zeer nuttig! Heb terug zowat de goesting te pakken, en weet vooral (dankzij de nuttige uitleg van Max) waar ik vroeger fouten maakte!! Bedankt Max!!!!

    Een gemoedelijke, leerrijke namiddag gehad bij Max. Veel geleerd over hout draaien. Op het eind met een doenbaar en bruikbaar schaaltje naar huis gefietst. Veel succes nog, Max, met je creaties!




    Topworkshop waar geen voorkennis voor vereist is. Max legt alles perfect uit met duidelijke kennis van zaken. Snel ga je over tot de echte houtdraai experience, van begin tot einde. Leuk om met een afgewerkt product de workshop te verlaten. Aanrader!
