Art of the Box: Contemporary Woodworking in Traditional Forms
Investigate infinite approaches and forms that a box can take on using both hand tools and machines. We will focus on exploring ideas and techniques that fall outside the typical six-sided container. Emphasis will be on shaping and sculpting pieces to create pleasing curves, unusual shapes and just about anything that falls into the category of fun and zany. A primary focus will be on carving patterns and applying color in a myriad of ways to the surface. Tools used will include, but not be limited to: carving tools, chisels, files and rasps, and some machinery. This is a great workshop to introduce the beginner to woodworking as well as an excellent opportunity for the seasoned woodworker to break into new territory. Workshop is open to all levels.
