Get to know a material that you see and work with every day, on a whole new level: wood. In this course, you’ll be able to create something unique with this versatile material from start to finish.
During this course, you’ll go off the beaten track. You will experience that wood as a material is very versatile. Did you know that is has a lot of the same qualities as plastic? It can be bended easier that you might think! In this course you will bend wood in a mould; this is called laminating. By combining this technique with digital techniques and some imagination, you can create original sculptures.
Because this is not a standard technique, the course is accessible for all levels.
