News Flash Free Colwin Way Demos starting tomorrow
Hi Folks just heard from Carl Burn, our webmaster, the news
that Axminster are offering a series of free live internet demonstrations featuring Colwin Way. The demonstrations are set to run every day this week. Carl has spoken with Colwin and the schedule will be as follows:
Colwin will take a piece of burr oak and cast it with resin, this is purely a tutorial on casting with the intention that on Friday we turn the piece cast on Monday into a small bowl. Colwin will explain how to make the mould, cut the timber, mix the resin and add pigment and explain about pressure pots.
Making wooden apples and pears, this will involve jam chucking and polishing techniques.
Hollow form day, the project will be a leaning garlic jar inspired by French sculptor Thierry Martenon. It will have a textured outside surface and a sanded flat base. This will feature the Woodcut hollowing system.
Back to a smaller project for this and an offset pendant, this uses several types of jaws both bought and home made to create the "off set".
Turning the cast burr oak bowl we prepped on Monday, again several holding techniques here plus reversing the bowl to finish.
