July 16 - 20
Monday - Friday
9am - 12pm
Driftwood, twigs, branches, recycled pallets and deconstructed furniture will be our source material for creating new, unique functional and sculptural objects. We will learn joinery techniques, mortise and tenon, peg and hole, wrapping and weaving. This class is open to all skill levels and projects will be individually geared to the creative desires of the student. Projects can range from garden trellises and side tables to site-specific permanent or temporary sculptures and structures in the woods and fields of Edgewood Farms. Inspiration can be found in the contemporary artwork of Deborah Butterfield, Andrew Goldsworthy and in historical rustic furniture.
