Intro to Steam Bending - Shaker Bentwood Boxes
2 Day Course - suitable for all levels
Use the traditional technique of steam bending to experience the art and craft of making Shaker Boxes. You will learn how to layout, cut, shape, feather and pin the fingers to create your own set of three Cherry boxes in graduating sizes.
Attractively detailed with copper tacks, the colour and figure of the timber will be enhanced using a traditional shellac and wax finish. This is a fun and addictive process that produces beautiful results.
