Instructor: Anna Poor
Monday - Friday
August 12 - 16
9am - 12pm
In this workshop, students will begin by designing and carving spoons. These unique objects may be whimsical, functional or non-functional, depending on one’s desire. The "simple" spoon requires learning the techniques of concave and convex carving, which is the basis of all carved sculpture. Examples of sculptural and functional wood pieces will be presented for reference and inspiration. This workshop is open to both the beginner and advanced student, as individual objectives will be discussed in a constructive and supportive environment. Beautiful hardwoods will be available for purchase.
