Creating spinning tops is one of the most creative processes that happen in our workshop and it all requires is focus and waking the child within, which is the reason we chose it for sharing with the public. As soon as you get here we will go through a short introduction of the lathe( wood turning machine) and the chisels, you'll use for making your own spinning top. After choosing our preferred piece of wood you'll jump right in to action, by starting to shape the spinning top, when we are happy with the shape we'll mix colors until we find the favorite of your taste, after putting on some colorful touches its time to cut the top and give it a spin. we guarantee you an unforgettable experience which combines creativity and creation with tangible results. No matter of age, everybody can enjoy a few whirling rounds a day.
My brother Navid and I are self thought woodworkers, creating and designing furniture, lighting and small objects since 2010 in the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. At our company Lovenlight we are committed to producing beautiful, timeless pieces by combining old craftsman techniques with striking, contemporary design and natural materials. From spinning tops to state of the art furniture, all of our creations are designed and produced locally in our shop, and have our care and attention lavished upon them. We are practicing woodturning for the past 7 years and we've learned a lot that we would love to share. We are new in teaching and that is why we chose spinning tops, a playful and creative process for trying woodturning for the first time.
You'll be provided with safety glasses, an apron, chisels and all the equipment you'll need to make your own spinning top.
We'll run the session at our woodworking workshop in the center of Limassol. The Lovenlight workshop is where all the magic happens, every piece of furniture, every spinning top we've made for the past 3 years has been born, drawn, and made there. If you love wood, you'll appreciate our place.
The main objective of our workshop is to experience the meditative process of using your hands and your mind to create a beautiful spinning top all from scratch. all you'll need is a focused mind and the will to learn something new. :) looking forward to create together :)
