Lee Valley Pen Turning Classes

I have not turned a pen I think in about 10 years - took a class back when  with Lee Valley  in their morningside branch.   On Feb 5th  taking two classes at their Vaugh location as  a tune up to start turning pens again as now I have the 3d printer and resin casting to work into it. 

Class one in the morning was making the european pen - remembering all the things we need to do - the blank I used was very light and pock marked and I really did not do a great job on it
but to tell the truth would rather make as many mistakes as 
possible so that I can ask questions on how to fix or get better at turning.

In the afternoon we did a baron fountain pen and got a dark wood this time and loved it.  A bit more intricate to assemble but a nice pen.

I have all the tools (I needed a drill bit for my Sierra blanks and some finishing  sealer/wax and some glue ) cant wait for the weather to warm up from all this nasty cold and ice

  1. can you explain a bit more? What are you making the pens from? HOW do you make them? Is this wood turning or clay modelling or...?
