Noisy Toys: Rattles and Monsters
October 27, 2019 – November 2, 2019
In this workshop students use basic woodworking techniques to create wooden creatures with surprising voices. They can include mini monsters with hidden rattle compartments, fipple whistles and clackers. Participants explore ways that standard machine techniques, like plug cutting or making a live tenon, can be used to bring a small block of wood to life. You will use hand carving techniques to discover natural character(s) you might find in the wood grain. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
