WOOD SHORT SESSION
September 25 – 30, 2022
(Four studio days)
In this workshop we’ll explore the basic principles at play behind one of woodworking’s most magical techniques: the tambour door. We’ll begin with a discussion of the history of tambours and a variety of techniques for creating them. Students will use a classic, canvas-backing technique to create their own tambour panel. We’ll also build small, simple cabinets with all the necessary tracks, escape routes, and other details to bring our tambours to life. All levels.
