Date: Jul 22 - 26, 2019

Skill Level(s): II to IV i

Instructor(s): Katie Hundall & Sylvie Rosenthal

Tuition: $1,075
Studio Fee: $150
Registration Fee: $45

Concept:

Let go of the preciousness in your working process. Students allow experimentation to run its course, then use those experiences to hash out problematic details of a particular project. Students are supported as they boldly go where they have not gone before, technically and conceptually. Students are encouraged to bring a problem, technique or part of a current work and explore its greater potential. This workshop is cumulative learning at its best.

Media & Techniques:

Students employ strategies with jigs and fixtures and work on sculptural assembly and deconstructed joinery. A wide range of processes and techniques are explored, including additive and subtractive joinery, kinetics, clamping and gluing non-traditional parts, jigs and fixtures, carving, surface embellishments, hardware alteration and consideration.

Activities:

Short brainstorming exercises are followed by quick demonstrations. Students receive plenty of independent work time as well as one-on-one time with faculty to explore conceptual technical problems.

Faculty:

Katie Hudnall teaches Furniture Design and Woodworking at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, IN, where she spends the rest of her time making tools for problems real and imagined.
