Bowl Carving Demonstration with Danielle Rose Byrd
Join us for an educational demonstration led by Danielle Rose Byrd. In this 3 hour program, Danielle will take you through the steps of carving a bowl with power carvers and hand tools. Her methods draw from traditional Scandinavian sloyd work, improvisation, and experimental techniques developed through trial and error.
Though 3 hours is only a fraction of the time it takes to complete one piece, she’ll have on hand some examples of her finished work. Quick clarifying questions and interaction are encouraged throughout, and time will be set aside after the demonstration for more in-depth explanations and discussion.
