Introduction To Embellished Objects, Vessels And Boxes
June 11, 2017 – June 17, 2017
During this class students explore how to personalize the surfaces of turned vessels, boxes and small sculptures by adding a variety of surface embellishments. Working with green and dry wood to make simple forms, you will carve and burn them using rotary flex-shaft, micro-motor tools and woodburners as well as experimenting with a variety of techniques for adding color using milk and acrylic paints. The goal is to gain confidence in turning, sharpening, carving, burning and coloring. All skill levels are welcome, but basic turning skills are beneficial.
COURSE FEE: $595
