Personal Reliquaries: Sculptural Story Boxes
September 9, 2018 – September 15, 2018
During this workshop students will make a wall cabinet using basic table saw joinery and incorporate their personal or iconic imagery to tell a story. You will learn to shape and texture wood for sculptural effects and use surface treatments such as dyes, stains, paint, drawing, collage and patinas. The doors can be slabs of live edge wood, bookmatched or not, attached with mortised hinges, and perhaps with found objects or by altering surfaces. Demonstrations, idea swapping, and individual attention will accompany the making. Familiarity with hand and power tools a plus but not essential. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $595
