Workshop Description

Students will explore new ideas and expand their material vocabulary while learning basic woodworking techniques of furniture making and sculpture work. 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.
