Wood Summer Session 6

JULY 30–AUGUST 11, 2023
Vivian Chiu
Joinery for Wood Sculpture

Build, craft, create, and learn in this workshop focused on making small sculptural objects and using wood as a medium for creative expression. Working with kiln-dried lumber, students will become familiar with a wide variety of hand and power tools as well as heavy woodworking machinery. Although our main focus will be traditional joinery, we’ll also cover wood selection and preparation, carving, shaping, and finishing. This workshop will offer a nurturing and welcoming environment for students to grasp the basics or brush up on old skills. Beginning level; experienced students welcome.
