Wood Summer Session 7
August 14–19

Finding the Soul of Lost Materials

This workshop will encourage students to experiment with innovative and intuitive ways of creating structures and forms using organic, found, and recycled materials. Employing unusual techniques developed by the instructor, each student will complete several forms. Students are invited to think about shapes and forms that hold particular interest for them and bring those ideas to the workshop along with some of their favorite cast-off materials. This workshop will be of value to beginners seeking an introduction to creating curious objects as well as experienced makers who want to reach the next level and break out of their comfort zone. All levels.
