During the class you will cover various forms of bending; steam bending, bent lamination, free form lamination with vacuum bags, and the use of coopering. You will also explore stack lamination, and carving to create more complex three dimensional components. We’ll take you through the process from rough form to finished through the use of hand tools, small power tools and stationary tools. The focus will be to give you the confidence to be able to fully explore your ideas when you return to your shop. We encourage you to work with poplar, alder or other less precious woods so that you are not afraid to push the limits of your exploration of techniques and process.
