In this class, students will discover interesting textures that are relatively easy to create: "hammer textured" faucets, shell textures, branch forms, leaf textures, etc. Tom will demonstrate each of the techniques the first week. Then in the second session we will address any questions and discuss variations on the themes. The supply kit will include four spoon blanks to create seashell and leaf spoons as well as standard cooking spoon shapes to texture. Plus, it will have multiple practice pieces.
