Woodworking Classes In David’s Workshop/Studio
“Love this school. This is where it all started for me almost 7 years ago. I wouldn’t be the artist I have become today without the help of David, and his amazing school. Anybody serious about being a woodturner or a skilled craftsman needs to spend time with David.”
3 Days Hands On
July 12 – 14, 2019 OR Dec. 6 – 8, 2019
David has expanded this class to 3 days to provide more time to go over the gilding and patina processes. Even if you have taken this class previously, this newly expanded class will include the use of frisket and other techniques to expand your capabilities. The processes that you will learn can be applied to any surface that will accept paint. These include wood, metal, paper, ceramics, glass, even plastics. So no matter if you are a jeweler, ceramicist, sculptor, blacksmith, woodworker or woodturner, you will take home some very creative and innovative techniques to enhance your work and increase your marketability.
In this class students will get to experiment with different woods and different shapes to create their own individual designs. Students will turn bowls and small hollow vessels and decorate them with segmented rings made of ebony and other exotic woods.Students can also add gilding and chemical patination to embellish their bowls and vessels. David will teach sharpening techniques as well as design techniques.
