I invite you to explore form, texture, color, and to challenge the growth of your own untapped self-expression. Venture outside your comfort zone and reach beyond your current skill level.
Keeping in mind the idea that art is intentional; design suggests a goal you set out to achieve in your work. That may be something as simple as creating a pleasing form, or using a more advanced technique such as hand-chasing threads.
Please note: This class requires at least an intermediate skill level in woodturning. The purpose for studying design is to learn about, and put to use, advanced elements in design: not to teach or practice basic woodturning skills.
