    NWWT MONTHLY MEETING

    Steve Newberry - Kuska Cup

    On-Line Demo

    Steve Newberry - Kuska Cup

    Our own Steve Newberry will demonstrate how to turn a Kuska.  What is a Kuska you ask?  It is a type of drinking cup traditionally crafted by the Sami people of northern Scandinavia from carved birch burl. Today Kuskas are generally hand carved using traditional carving tools.  Google Kuska - it has a fascinating history.  Steve will show us how to make one on a lathe - should be interesting.

    On-Line Demo

    The Multnomah Art Center will still be closed so this will be another on-line meeting using Zoom.  Meeting information will be sent to all members a few days before the meeting.
