Day 1 of 3
This three day workshop introduces the hot pipe wood bending technique to participants interested in exploring an accessible and expressive approach to material manipulation. This bending technique can be used in producing sculpture, furniture and scale models, appealing to 3D artists, furniture makers and product designers alike. Day 1 will begin with an explanation and demonstration of the bending process before participants experiment with the technique by bending their own set of salad tongs. Participants will spend the following 2 days fabricating a bent wood hanging mobile or wind chime of their own design. Enjoyable for all levels of experience.
