This is an IN-PERSON CLASS.In this class we’ll cover several techniques for bending wood: steambending, bent lamination, and kerf bending. This fast-paced class will begin with a series of bending exercises during which students will gain experience with each technique. Then students will be guided through the process of making their own small bent-wood project: from design to jig making to finished project.
All skill levels welcome. No prerequisites.
WOO is a non-profit safe space for training underrepresented genders in our field. As such, enrollment is limited to non-binary, trans, and woman-identifying folks over the age of 18.
All class times are in U.S. Eastern Time.
