Thursday 9th June

This is a day learning about  the most exciting steam-bending process - free bending.  We will also look at designing and making 3D bends and jigs, knowledge that could be applied to 3D laminating or other materials.
 
You will:
 
Learn about how wood fibres stretch and compress during bending, and what the limits are.
Bend wood with and without a compression strap
​Twist wood
Use a variety steam-bending 'jigs' from the workshop
Learn and use a simple design method for visulising complex shapes
Learn to make 3D steel formers for bending over
Learn to make drying jigs 
 
Everyone will design and make your very own free-bent form or sculpture to take home.
 
This course is the day after the 'Compression Straps' course and could to taken as a 2-day course if you wanted for a greater understanding to do thicker bends.
