The Massachusetts South Shore Woodturners will host a live woodturning demonstration on Sunday.
The event will be held at 2:30 p.m. at the Dyer Memorial Library, 28 Centre Ave. It is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
Woodturning is a form of woodworking that is used to create wooden objects on a lathe, or machine. In woodturning, the wood is moving while a stationary tool is used to cut and shape it.
“Woodturning is a blend of technique and artistry,” the group’s website states. “The technique begins with good instruction and improves with practice. Artistry comes from within. It is each person’s interpretation of the world around them.”
Inspiration for woodturning can come from nature, other cultures, history, and household items, the website states.
The group, which formed in 1996, now has more than 60 members.
