This two-week workshop will be an intensive study of how to work with wood, through both design and physical hands-on practice. Each student will make a table (either a sofa, coffee, hall, or dining room table), but the design and embellishments will be based on the first week's practical experiences. During the first week, Marc will demonstrate different woodworking techniques, such as veneering; carving; modeling in clay; inlay techniques; advanced joinery; working with stone; bending, shaping, and sculpting wood; surface texturing; patination; and the process of developing the design. Each day, students will practice new skills. By the end of the first week, these skills will be incorporated into the table project. Students will be required to include unique and complicated skills into the design of their table. Mockups, patterns and full-scale drawings will be required before starting the project.
By the beginning of the second week, students will start their table using the techniques and lessons that they learned during the first week. There will be special sessions on wood selection, making special jigs and fixtures, machine techniques, using modern adhesives, finishing, and, of course, safety. Students should already be working toward their Masters and will need to bring their materials for the table or purchase them after arriving. Practice materials for the first week will be included in the materials fee.
