Beyond The Basic Box
November 1, 2020 – November 7, 2020
In this workshop students will utilize the woodturned box form to do a deep dive into surface embellishment and decoration. Although topics covered will include box design, wood selection, grain orientation and turning methods, the primary focus will be on methods of surface detailing. Relief carving, texturing, woodburning, branding and various coloring methods will be explored. Participants will complete several boxes during the workshop, and most importantly leave with an understanding of several new methods for adding detail and color to their work. Some prior experience at the lathe and using rotary carving tools will be beneficial.
COURSE FEE: $675
