Shaping Wood: Manipulating Material
June 14, 2020 – June 20, 2020
The most obvious trait of wood as a material is its linear structure. In this workshop students will manipulate wood to create curves, volumes, and three-dimensional forms. You will begin class by designing and creating a spoon. Discussions include how to plan, mark and prepare material for shaping. Participants will explore various shaping techniques with the use of hand tools. You will then create another spoon or object of your original design. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
