Green River Woodworking's new name is officially The Gift Turning Studio.
Our studio is nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina where we have our working studio and teach classes. We also will come to your club or organization with a turning demonstration.
We create one-of-a-kind art pieces, utilitarian bowls and gift items.
Classes are offered for up to twostudents at a time. With a class this size I can provide one on one attention and encouragement for each student. My goal is that each student leave with better turning skills, techniques and turning knowledge.
Joe Ruminski offers a variety of turning demonstrations and hands-on classes at your club or organization. His presentations are fast paced and show how the basics of turning can be used to make wonderful art pieces. If you are into more advanced turning that is covered with texturing, burning, piercing, multi center turning and color. These demonstrations are designed to keep people engaged and allow for questions to be asked an answered.
We are proud members of the following organizations:
American Association of Woodturners
Carolina Mountain Woodturners
Southern Highlands Craft Guild
