This class will address designing and making functional and expressive wood forms with laminations – elements made up of thin layers of wood, glued together under pressure.  Students will make sample laminations to learn about lamination methods, and then design and build a small furniture or sculptural work that includes a laminated element.  Students will learn to design the making process as well as the piece, including the molds or jigs required to make their laminated element.   They will learn how design, technical, and material challenges and constraints can inspire more creative solutions.  They will advance their hand and power tool skills, learn specialized cutting and shaping procedures appropriate to their projects, and develop their knowledge of sustainable wood sourcing and use.  Working together they will acquire a deeper understanding of how mind, hand, and tools work together to shape wood into both expressive and useful forms.

The class is best suited to students with some prior woodworking experience.
