Carving and Painting on Wood
Woodenware has been embellished since ancient Egypt: by adding color, pattern and texture, a finished piece reflects the taste, culture, and interests of you, the maker. We will look many places for inspiration: the natural world and the extensive collections of folk art available in digital archives in the museums of Norway and Sweden. We will then take those ideas and experiment with layout, carving, and painting with milk paint and other paints onto sample boards, creating a visual record of ideas to draw from for other pieces. Once the samples are dry we will go through various basic finishing steps. .
