Woodturning Demonstrations

Thank you for your interest in having me demo for your club or group. Below is a list of topics that I currently have available. I am set up to do remote demos as well as limited in-person demos. All of my demos are geared towards both beginner and advanced turners. If you are interested in booking a demo please contact me for price and availability.

Introduction to Turning Paper: Are you interested in turning paper and don’t know where to start? This demo goes into depth on the paper turning process, from selecting material, to laminating paper and finishing the piece. This presentation includes both slides and a small paper turning project.

Paper & Wood Bowls: In this demo, Kailee walks the participants through the process of turning one of her signature Paper and Wood Bowls. She starts by talking about the process of laminating paper in a variety of orientations, and then turns a small bowl, emphasizing what makes turning paper different. The process introduced can be applied to a variety of different forms and is great for both beginner and advanced turners.

Introducing Alternate Materials in Your Turnings: Just because it is called (wood)turning doesn’t mean we have to be limited to just wood. In this demo Kailee discusses her own work and how she has incorporated a variety of different materials from paper to bronze. She also introduces the audience to other artists work who are using the lathe with alternate materials.

Turning with Kids: In this demo Kailee introduces a variety of different topics that are great to get you started turning with kids. She covers the safety considerations that should be taken into account when introducing kids to the lathe, and how you can engage youth with the woodturning community. Demo is geared towards adults teaching kids woodturning, but can be enjoyed by kids as well, getting them excited to turn.
