Woodturning Demonstration at Oak Hill

Release Date: November 06, 2018

Berry College alum and artist Al Christopher will lead a woodturning demonstration and discuss his work on Nov. 12 at the Christopher Browning Pavilion at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum.  

Christopher’s work is on display for the first time publicly at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum through May 2019. He began turning wood after retiring from a career in custom millwork and construction. His passion and inspiration for woodturning comes from the stories behind each project and the ability to continually learn more about the art. Christopher has also helped with building projects on Berry’s campus. The Christopher Browning Pavilion located on the grounds of Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum is his most recent contribution.  

The woodturning demonstration will be from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 12. Christopher will discuss woodturning basics, answer questions and turn a wood form on a lathe. The exhibition will remain open until 5:45 p.m. Nov. 12, for guests to visit prior to the demonstration.  

This event is free and open to the public.  

Christopher will return for additional demonstrations throughout the exhibition’s run. Dates will be released once finalized. For more information on Christopher and the exhibitions please visit: https://www.berry.edu/oakhill/
