Wood Spring Concentration
March 10 – May 3, 2019
Chairish Every Moment
We’ll spend two months examining different approaches to making chairs. We’ll begin quick, experimental, and free and end by making a pair of carefully considered chairs. To reach our goals, we’ll sketch, explore new materials and processes, make models, do mockups, draw our designs in full scale, and have fun. We’ll cover all the woodworking and other skills needed to make chairs. Students who have less experience will work in small groups to get comfortable using the machines. We’ll also cover basic upholstery techniques and have access to a small CNC router. All levels. Code S00W
