Inception To Completion: Resin Casting a Burl Vessel
July 21, 2019 – July 27, 2019
In this workshop students will make a resin cast burl vessel to discover the artistry in selecting the right piece of wood and how burl selection, proportion, color selection and finish are all-important to the final aesthetic of a piece. You will learn about the types of resins, pigments, forming and equipment that are needed, combined with techniques to successfully complete your piece. This is an inception to completion study. With a little patience, acquired skills, and attention to technical detail, participants will go home with a beautiful finished piece. A student’s working knowledge of vessel and bowl turning is helpful to a successfully completed piece.
COURSE FEE: $675
