Wood – Special Session
May 9-15, 2021
Carving and Shaping
Bored with straight lines? This workshop will throw a curve into your creative process! We’ll cover a wide range of tools and techniques for shaping and carving wood. Students will learn to visualize and sketch their designs, rough them out with the bandsaw, angle grinder, or drawknife, and bring them to final form with a variety of hand tools. Possible projects include spoons, utensils, bandsaw boxes, sculpture, or furnitures components. Projects will be customized for each student’s skill level so they will be both challenging and achievable. All levels.
