Enrollment Limit 8

Concept: Take a basic woodturned form and reconstruct it into an unusual and striking artwork. The resultant form can be an open or closed form, even a teapot. In this workshop, students will explore the possibilities of carved feet, pierced accents and lids/finials on the closed forms. Depending on students’ goals, we will explore accent options combining texturing, airbrushing, veneers, woodburning and inlays. There will be an emphasis on proper use of the tools, with a focus on issues of form, design and complimentary accents. Students can concentrate on a single piece or explore a range of forms and accents depending on their skill and goals. We’ll keep lecture time to a minimum so there will be more time for individual instruction.

Media & Techniques: Kiln-dried wood; veneers and minerals for inlay.

Activities: Each day there will be two technical demonstrations while the majority of time will be spent on individual projects. Students can expect a lot of one-on-one instruction.

Skill level: Levels II - IV (Minimum Skill Level II)

Faculty: Stephen Hatcher has developed techniques for creating imagery using mineral inlay in wood. His unique woodturned artwork has enjoyed wide popularity with galleries, exhibitions and collections internationally. He has been widely published and has taught at symposiums and woodturning clubs nationwide.
