Beth Ireland
Instructor
is a Woodturner/Sculptor who draws upon a lifetime of professional, traditional Woodturning/Woodworking skills to explore sculpture, architecture and relational aesthetics. Her belief in the power of the object drives her work, exploring the idea of memory locked in objects, and the creation of object as a visible symbol of memory. Working alone and collaboratively she delves into the anthropological meaning of making in our modern lives.

John Henry Souza
Instructor
I come from a very creative household, my mother is a textile artist and my father is an architect. Throughout my childhood they instilled the value of making things by hand, quality work comes from attention to detail, and to highlight imperfections and irregularities instead of trying to hide them. Prior to woodworking I worked as a cook in restaurant kitchens. In those environments I learned that the finished product can only be as good as the quality of the ingredients you start with. You must treat the ingredients and the tools of preparation with reverence and respect. You can learn an infinite amount from the people who have come before you but you also cannot let previous experience stifle your creativity. I have found that all of these principles apply to woodworking and furniture making. My ultimate goal is to transform a natural product into something that brings someone comfort and happiness.

Giles Newman
Instructor
With a background in photography and graphic design but a lifelong love of woodlands and wilderness, I started teaching myself woodcarving in early 2015 as a way to spend more time in the small woodland that I manage in the mountains of North Wales. Using only the tools that I already had for looking after the woodland, my axe and a knife, I began carving wooden spoons from wind-fallen trees and branches that I would find and forage for on the woodland floor. After twelve months I abandoned my life as a designer and photographer to pursue my wood carving full time.

Weekend – Intro to Box Making

Build your skills and store your tools! Chisels present a particular challenge; their sharp edges can inflict damage. If your chisels are rattling around in a drawer or still in the flimsy original packaging, consider making a box to protect and organize them for easy retrieval.

This class will help you grow your hand tool and machine skills and create a practical storage box for your chisels that will last you a lifetime.

Class Learning Objectives:

  • Box design considerations
  • Carcass construction using resawn lumber
  • Mitres and splined mitre joints
  • Setting hinges and hardware
  • The goal is to complete your pieces, aside from finishing. An oil wax finish is available.

No experience is required for this class, although we highly recommend that you take the Weekend Beginning Woodwork class first to get the most learning out of this one.
