This workshop focuses on techniques used in the instructor’s Illusions in Wood body of works. Students will use woodburning tips and rotary powered tools to create textures and patterns on their woodturnings. Milk paint, Gesso and acrylic paints will complete the illusion, deceptively transforming the pieces into pottery, ceramics, cloisonné, glass or hammered metal. Students will learn to turn and decorate their forms. Class demonstrations include how to use patterns and colors on the turned forms and applying patterns. You will leave class having learned techniques that you can use in their own shops. Prior turning skills are helpful, but not required. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
