Bowl carving with Dave Fisher
June 7th & 8th
OR June 10th &11th, 2019 $375
You'll begin with a log and Dave will lead you in visualizing, laying out, hollowing, hewing, and slicing your way to a graceful and functional bowl.
As the chips fly, Dave will focus on techniques and skills that are transferable to a variety of bowl designs.
All experience levels are welcome.
Tools & materials
Students should bring a hollowing adze*, carving hatchet, bent gouge, and sloyd knife*. Also, a large pencil compass or dividers similar to this 12" model. A serviceable compass can even be made with some strips of wood and a bolt for a pivot point. Other tools that may come in handy are a drawknife or pushknife, spokeshave, and a pencil* for writing on green wood. Other gouges, hooks, etc. are welcome too -- we'll figure it out!
Materials are included.
