Sculptural Rocking Chair II with MASW Staff August 29 - September 2, 2022

about this workshop

If you are reading this class description, you’re not alone. There are quite a few students who have taken the “Sculptural Rocking Chair” class over the years and left with a completely made and jointed rocking chair—ready for the final sculpting, sanding, and finishing—which somehow never got done. If you are in that number, then this is the class for you. This will be a rare opportunity to come and finish your chair under Marc’s guidance. Students will be able to make replacement parts, sculpt, fix, grind, sand, glue, and even spray lacquer on their newly finished chairs. Students will be directed on placement of hard and soft lines, carving details and fine tuning the fit. We will not make new chairs in this class. If it’s time to finally get that chair done, here is your chance. (Students’ names and identities will be changed to protect the innocent.) Open only to past “Sculptural Rocking Chair” students.
