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.

Michael will be leading this from his beautiful studio in California.
