Concept: To find one’s voice in artistic turning or woodworking requires a repertoire of techniques for going beyond the basic form. This class will introduce surface enhancement techniques. We’ll shake up our usual ways of looking and spend time during the course learning to “see” the world at a different scale. Among other exercises, students will use a digital camera to take close-up pictures of textures and patterns which will then be implemented into design techniques.

Media & Techniques: Wood and paint. Pyrography; power carving; texturing with pyrography and power carvers; scorching techniques; art marker coloring techniques for wood surfaces; acrylic paint techniques; digital photography; and wood turning.

Activities: Mornings will include hands-on sessions, exercises in learning to “see,” and slide presentations. Afternoons and evenings will be open for hands-on sessions and design workshops.

Skill level: Level III

Faculty: Andi Wolfe’s woodturning sculptures are inspired from her career as a botanist. Her turnings and carvings are in major collections around the globe and have been included in museum and gallery exhibitions, as well as featured in books, magazines and catalog covers.
