What are the qualities of light that inspire? This exploratory workshop delves into the dynamic properties of light and how it can be shaped and manipulated as a physical material. Rather than incorporating a light source to illuminate a woodworking project, woodworking techniques are used to transform our perception of the light itself. We explore luminosity, translucence, and shadow through the organic lens of bent wood. Students learn basic wiring and are introduced to freeform bent lamination techniques as they prototype a light of their own design.
