Join us on a steam bending journey and create a unique pendant lamp in this family-friendly class. While learning the history and theory of steam bending, students will get lots of practical experience bending pre-milled blanks into sculptural forms. Students and the instructor will discuss common problems and solutions in the steam bending process, including how to avoid run-out, building a form to fit your goal, and how to create a successful bend in a matter of seconds. At the end of the class, each student will combine their best pieces to create a beautiful hanging pendant lamp. A two-person class would take home two lamps, a four-person class would take home two lamps.
All materials and supplies are included.
Total instruction time is 9 hours, divided into three, three-hour sessions.
Class is limited to four students, ages 12 and up. Great class for families, couples, and friends!
