It's The Inside That Counts: The Art of Organically Shaped Drawers
This workshop presents various techniques for making organic shaped boxes in wood. Students design and build their own piece of art focusing on the idea of hidden interiors and drawers in unexpected places. Demonstrations include bandsaw boxes, stack-lamination, shaping with hand tools, and finishing techniques. Consideration is given to personal expression through design and creating a container for a personal object or idea. Participants may create several small pieces that utilize different techniques or can choose to focus on one larger work most of the week.
