Mastering Sculptural Steam Bending with Charlie Whinney October 3-7, 2022

This class is suitable for complete beginners as well as professionals and will make you look at wood and trees in a completely new way. By the end of the week students will know what to look for in choosing wood for steam bending as well as how to make the tools, jigs and equipment needed to master bending wood. Over the five days Charlie will stress to students the importance of understanding the processes. Each day participants will make a selection of small creative projects including steam bent bowls, boxes, lights, a small table and sculptures. Though there will be items for each person to take home, some of the larger projects made in class demonstrations will be auctioned with proceeds going to the Roger Cliffe Memorial Foundation.
