Kate Casey

Tuition $975
Code W0312-21

Coopering, the traditional craft of making barrels, buckets and all forms of wooden storage containers, is used widely in contemporary furniture design as both a functional and sculptural technique. This workshop covers the basics of coopering, detailing various methods, techniques and forms from a sculptural standpoint. Leave the right angles behind and embrace the possibilities of adding curvature to wooden forms as we address the different uses and potentialities of this traditional method of woodworking.
