The class will start with a full scale drawing and cut list. We will then determine and estimate: all the necessary materials, the concerns of wood expansion and contraction, lumber selection, the process of milling, safety concerns, mortise and tenon construction, dovetail joinery, the art of drawer making, the tapering of legs, gluing and making of the top. This will ensure success in making a table for generations to enjoy. In the class we will be using a combination of hand and power tools. If you have basic power tool safety skills (table saw, jointer and planer) you are welcome to enroll; no hand tool skills required as they will be taught. The side table will be made of cherry.

Damascus steel, the stuff of ancient legends, is taken one step further in the current way of replicating it by forge welding layered steel with a hydraulic press. Celeste Tracy has been making Damascus at Pratt for nine years and continues to be fascinated with the process. She will familiarize students with this process by using Pratt's Damascus forge and hydraulic press built specifically for this purpose. This technique opens up the possibilities of a myriad of designs and uses for the patterned steel produced. The student will come away with a billet ready to transform into a future work of art.

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Akari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of sculptural paper lamps. From this we can gain inspiration and ideas for a pendant lamp design that can be completed in the five day class. In this class you will learn to build a sculptural lamp using several different wood bending techniques such as heat bending thin strips of wood, and using basket reed, and a tapered lamination technique that is unique and fun. Students will use these techniques to create three dimensional bends such as spirals, and helical forms without the constraints of clamps or conventional bending forms. You will learn the basics of the tapered lamination process, beginning with rough lumber that you will joint, plane, and rip into thin strips to be tapered. Send an email to Kim Mcintyre kmcintyre@pratt.org to get the finer details of the class, including the required student tool list.
