Crucian Heritage and Nature Tourism, Inc. Presents:

Woodturning On A Lathe (apprenticeship class)


Our young Apprentices are a vital part of CHANT's Invisible Heritage project, whose vision is to engage our local community in rebuilding and occupying derelict structures of the Free Gut neighborhood in the town of Frederiksted (St. Croix, USVI). They continue to build knowledge and aptitude in several areas while training in our job experience program toward careers in the building arts, historic restoration and preservation.

 

Woodturning on a lathe is another important skill set taught in part by a new CHANT volunteer. Victoria Rivera, a retired physician, frequently travels to Nashville, TN to study this ancient art form. As a Tennessee Woodturners Association 2018 Scholarship recipient, Miss Vicki (as her students call her) dedicated the funds toward Training-The-Trainer sessions with her own mentor, Pat Matranga. She will return to St. Croix in November 2018 and continue working individually with our apprentices to build their woodturning skills in a safe environment.
