This course extends fundamental knowledge of introductory woodworking skills introducing a range of methods to bend timber to create individual curved elements. A range of methods for creating curves from solid sections and laminating are surveyed, as well as techniques for joinery in curved work. Students will work both during and outside of class to create a series of speculative and resolved objects. The course is taught by a combination of readings, lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and supervised practice that exposes students to a combination of technology, theory, history, and design and making processes. Workplace health and safety instruction is an integral part of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate creative exploration, experimentation and integration of ideas, materials and techniques relevant to woodworking and furniture;
- apply knowledge of the historical, cultural and theoretical contexts, and contemporary practices in appropriating techniques or methods to individual projects; and
- demonstrate critical reflection and contextual understanding on own work and that of other artists/designers through journals, discussions, and presentations.
