These techniques include safety, milling, table saw boxes, simple joinery, model-making, and prototyping. Participants will explore alternative mediums such as weaving with wood and reeds, creating armatures with wire, and working with a variety of fiber media. Through daily demonstrations and individual guidance, students will think creatively and problem-solve in their work. You will begin by producing a one-day vessel project and spend the week designing your own project that can be a bookshelf, a collection of spoons, or a sculpture. Open to all skill levels.
