Organic Woodcarving

October 18, 2020 – October 24, 2020

Lisa York

During this workshop students will learn how to combine multiple pieces of wood and carve an organic shaped sculpture that holds an object. The class will focus on idea development on paper and creating an actual three-dimensional sculpture. You will gain the needed knowledge to do basic additive techniques of combining multiple pieces of wood, and subtractive methods of carving rounded shapes using a variety of hand and power tools. Prior experience using power tools is beneficial, however the class is open to all skill levels.
