AAW Presents: Mark Sfirri
Design Approaches for Woodturning

Saturday, January 22, 2022
3:00 p.m. Eastern Time

 Join us online for an intriguing presentation by Mark Sfirri, who will explore woodturning design and offer suggestions to expand the scope of your work and make it more reflective of your own personality and interests. (This is an informative and inspiring presentation and not a demonstration.)

In his own work, Mark uses a wide variety of techniques, including multi-axis turning, carving, and surface design, to create the components he incorporates into furniture, as well as the stand-alone objects he turns.

In this presentation, Mark will discuss the inspirations for his designs and the importance of changing directions, as well as the work and influences of other makers. He’ll share stories about collaborations and the lessons he learned from those experiences. Key takeaways from this session include:

  • Ability to think more creatively about the objects that you want to make.
  • Understand methods to research and educate yourself about design.
  • Know ways to use turning for personal expression.
