Session 4: Sculptural Bowl Carving

All Levels
June 24 - June 28, 2024

Sculptural Bowl Carving

In this workshop we will carve a bowl straight from a log using both power carving and hand tools. We will rough shape both the hollow and exterior of the bowl with power carving tools, and refine the shape with a variety of hand tools. Variations on tools, techniques, and approaches will be discussed, as well as exploration into some fancy feet. We’ll take a deep dive into sharpening, talk about material selection and explore the considerations of making design decisions.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $115-145. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop. Additional wood will be available for purchase by the board foot.
