Naturally formed wood presents us with an array of shapes and forms that with proper selection and joinery techniques, allow the maker fantastic creative possibilities. This class will begin with a look at who you are in relation to the trees that surround you. You will create functional and sculptural objects from naturally formed and low-impact harvested wood. In combination with milled lumber using traditional and inventive techniques, you will create furniture and objects that lead to artistic expression. You will learn tree identification, harvesting, appropriate tools, carving, joinery, and surface adornment. You will also be encouraged to explore playfully, thoughtfully and creatively.
