Texturing and Specialty Enhancements of Wood Turnings
August 11, 2019 – August 17, 2019
This workshop explores techniques for creating textural elements on a turned platter or bowl. Students will turn bowls and platters with a focus on designs that highlight a textural element. You will make texturing tool bits to better understand the profiles that you can create and use a variety of texturing and carving tools to make a unique pattern on wood. Participants will utilize color and dyes to highlight elements of the turned pieces and show the effects created with layering textures and painted elements. Previous turning experience is required.
COURSE FEE: $675
