Learn How To Carve Shallow Vessels

A wonderful opportunity to explore the art of vessel making in a very creative way.  This class is open to a nonwoodworkers as well as woodworkers of all skill levels who would like to break into new territory.

In this virtual class, taught by renowned furniture maker Michael Cullen a regular contributor to Fine Woodworking magazine, you’ll investigate different approaches and forms that a vessel can become using basic hand tools such as chisels and rasps.

This workshop is highly creative and will focus on exploring ideas in vessel making that fall outside the typical container concept. Emphasis will be on shaping and sculpting these lovely shallow boxes to create pleasing curves, unusual shapes, and just about anything that falls into the category of fun and zany.  A primary focus of the workshop will be on creating pattern and texture – a signature element that Michael is renowned for.

This is a singular opportunity to learn from an internationally known craftsman, from the comfort of your home or workshop.

Learn along with other makers as you participate in this live video conference class taught by Michael Cullen while you chat with your classmates from around the nation and world in real-time.  There is a lot of interaction, and you’ll get to watch and engage with Michael as he leads you through the process of crafting these beautiful vessels using only handtools.  Michael will be leading this from his beautiful studio in California.

The class is split into manageable sections of approximately 1.5 – 2  hours online followed by work periods where you will work at your own pace.  You’ll be invited to a private Facebook group and will be able to access recordings of the class for reference.

This class is perfect for the beginner who is curious about making things from wood and is also very good for the expert who is looking to create something new and fresh.
