Led by Faris Marashli, this workshop will focus on wood carving for beginners. The workshop will take place over 2 days, and participants should sign up through this form.
Over the span of 2 days the participants will learn the basics of wood carving, proper use of tools, wood engraving methods on oak, walnut and beech wood, and they will leave with their own engraved object.
This workshop is part of our program From the Rooftops, a mutual aid initiative in the form of a community-run garden on the art center’s roof. We have been working with a wide network of local collaborators in setting up the space and we are excited for this workshop to be the first in a series of upcoming workshops themed around handcraft practices with natural materials.
