Dan Webb: You Could With Wood
February 7 – March 14, 2013
The usability, availability, and affordability of wood make it a natural for endless exploration. This class will use wood as the main ingredient in realizing ideas in three dimensions. Along the way you will not only gain hands on skills with tools, but a major focus will be placed on developing conceptual and verbal skills to help better understand your own process. The result will be a completed piece and a better understanding of how to harness one’s creativity. This class is not designed to be an introduction to woodworking and tools, instead it is meant to build upon skills you already have and apply them to realize creative concepts.
Prerequisite: good understanding of woodworking processes and safe practices.
