Workshop

Description

Participants learn all aspects of the finishing process as practiced in the non-industrial furniture shop. By the end of the course, each participant knows how to fill grain, apply dyes and pigments, and put on hand-rubbed varnish, shellac, and oil finishes. Work is done on sample panels and students are encouraged to bring special pieces of their own wood to experiment upon.

Through lecture and demonstration, Teri explains everything from wood preparation to rubbing out. This includes selecting the proper abrasives, sanders, and fillers; layering of colorants; bleaching, glazing, and brushing; French Polishing; and, of course, techniques for rubbing the final finish to perfection. Tuition: $650
