Day 1: Material overview, tufting set up, and tufting demonstration. Open Studio time with guidance. You can take a lunch break during open studio time. Adhesive application to dry overnight.
Day 2: Additional open studio time, I will be demonstrating carving tools and finishing techniques to experiment with.


Light snacks and drinks will be available during the workshop. I have a microwave available for heating up any packed lunch, and there are many places available to eat only a short drive away. Bring a water bottle to stay hydrated! If you have long hair, please tie it up for the duration of the workshop. Please let me know ahead of time if you are not comfortable with being photographed during the workshop.
