"Laura is a talented artist and gifted teacher - and has created an amazing workshop experience at her Orcas Island studio. She makes wood turning very accessible, even to beginning wood workers. You'll leave invigorated and eager to get back on the lathe. Her studio provides a gorgeous setting for a fun, relaxing, and creative retreat. The panoramic island view outside the Stables is worth the trip alone, and the location is perfect for easily exploring the rest of the island. I am always looking forward to my next chance to work with Laura - the hardest part is the ferry ride home!"

"Laura is a great teacher!"
"I really enjoyed Laura's workshop. I think I was a challenging student, as I came to Laura with a just a bit of turning experience combined with large and specific ambitions about what I wanted to get out of the class. She did a great job tailoring our sessions to match my knowledge level and meet my goals. I highly recommend Laura's classes to turners of any experience level."
