Sculptural Brush Making

with ASpen Golann
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
November 5 & 12 | Time: 4:00- 6:00p.m. ET
Learn to design and make your own elegant brushes for home and shop use. Whether you are just starting out or looking for a new way to apply a lifetime of woodworking experience, brush making is an exciting and accessible craft.
This class will help you hone your carving skills, flex your design muscles, and blend function and sculpture. We will cover wood shaping, fiber choice, brush construction, angled drilling, design, and traditional and modern carving techniques. We will also touch on bleaching & ebonizing, sharpening, and adhesives.
We will cover all of the technical and design principles you need to know to design your own brushes from scratch. We will also survey a broad array of utensils from throughout history to inspire your design ideas - we will also discuss newer examples of experimental and non-functional design. All levels welcome.
