Carving, Color and Boxes, Oh My!
July 15, 2018 – July 21, 2018
In this workshop students investigate different approaches and forms that a box can take using hand tools and machines. You will also explore ideas in box making that fall outside the typical six-sided container. The focus is on carving pattern and applying color to the surface in a myriad of ways. Participants will sculpt pieces to create pleasing curves and unusual shapes that are fun. Tools used include carving tools, chisels, spoke shaves, files and rasps, and some machinery. This class is perfect for the beginner who is curious and the expert who is looking to create something new and fresh. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $595
