Description

During this weekend packed class, students will turn and decorate bowls and boxes. Students will start by turning and texturing a small bowl, using a choice of power carving, rotary tools, hand held texturing wheels and punches. These treasured bowls will be either gilded or reactive patina painted to bronze the surface depending on your choice and design. Students will also make a lidded container and use metal reactive paint to bronze the surface. This will be with wood in an end grain orientation. Health and safety tool sharpening, ways to hold the work, and tool control will be covered in this fun packed two days.
