Hands-On Workshop

In this two class, Mike Cundall will teach you the methods of green-wood bowl carving. Youll split & rive a blank from a round log, learn about shape design and layout and get to work on hewing out the rough dimensions of your bowl blank. Youll discover how the selection methods involving size, species, and important wood properties can all make a difference for successfully carving a bowl.

Owing to the wood being green, a roughed-out bowl blank then must be allowed to dry slowly. The roughed-out blank gets shaped to the appropriate dimensional thicknesses. This will help promote proper drying of the wood (to be as crack-free as possible). Students will be shown the processes to continue working at home on their roughed-out blank to go from the rough form to a ready to use bowl. Demonstration and discussion of proper drying methods, use of gouges, spokeshaves, drawknives, material holding techniques, sharpening and tool edge maintenance will be covered.

Come ready for a robust workout, especially if you are not accustom to working actively with your hands. (Mike will offer breaks so you can rest tired hands and arms and at which point class discussions of progress and processes will take place.)

This class has a required tool list and a $30 materials fee payable to the instructor in cash or check on the first day of class.
