Powercarving Sculptural Shapes and Surface Designs
October 6, 2019 – October 12, 2019
This workshop includes detailed hands-on demonstrations of wood shaping, powercarving, woodburning and coloring techniques enabling students to transform wood into sculpture and create gorgeous textured and relief-carved surfaces. Bandsaws, angle grinders and sanders will be used for roughing out shapes, then micromotor powercarvers will be employed for shape refinement and embellishment. Students will create a finished sculpture carved in the round, and samplers of textured, relief-carved, colored designs worthy of framing. Students are welcome to bring woodturned objects to embellish. Open to all levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
