Make your own wood shaving ornaments! Inspired from traditional Scandinavian wood ornaments, we’ll use wood shavings made from hand planes, and use wood glue to create naturally beautiful and festive decorations. These designs take some patience to form, but the results are worth it!
We’ll make some more traditional patterns, and we’ll also use materials from nature for inspiration, so you can go wherever your imagination takes you. Ranging from complex patterns to fun and simple curls, these shavings ornaments would make nice gifts and pleasing holiday decorations for years to come! Depending on the size and intricacy of your designs, each participant will be able to make 5 – 10 ornaments during the workshop. You’ll also have the opportunity, if desired, to try out a hand plane or shavehorse to make your own shavings.
We provide all the materials — lots and lots of curled wood shavings from hand planing — and supplies needed; we’ll also break with coffee, hot chocolate and cookies.
Space is limited to 10 participants. Children ages 8 and older, accompanied by an adult are welcome to attend for this workshop. (The work is fairly delicate, so parents, use your best judgement as to the suitability for your youngster.)
