Wood Summer Session 6

Wood Summer Session 6
August 9-21, 2020
Daniel Michalik
Cork

This workshop will explore cork and the many possibilities for design and making that can emerge from this wonderful, ecological material. We’ll learn and apply traditional woodworking techniques including machining, hand shaping, lathe turning, and bending, as well as experimental techniques such as cork casting. Cork will be used to achieve structure and visual texture in combination with wood and on its own. We’ll study cork farming, harvesting, and production and make objects that reflect these systems. We’ll start with experiments and then create tabletop accessories and furniture forms in which cork plays a central role. All levels. Code 06W
