The Art of the Craft - August 23 - 29, 2015

Joe Dickey will be be teaching at the John C. Campbell school, August 23 - 29, 2015

Wood is an expressive medium; one which conveys stress, character, and beauty. We will start with some seemingly unlikely tree parts and discuss where the artful forms might be buried in it and options to bring these out. There are some well accepted elements of design which, when applied to woodturning, give a vocabulary to discuss the “art of the craft” and enhance the appeal of turned pieces. Turners of all experience levels should benefit from this.
