Thursday 16th June

This is a day learning about the most experimental and exciting aspect of the steam-bending process in our practice currently.  Hot laminating gives a huge amount of creative freedom to make forms that are both very strong, permanent and can be any shape.  Get the very best from a solid peice of wood and do not be limited by many of the normal rules of wood work.
 
You will:
 
Learn about how wood fibres stretch and compress during bending, and what the limits are.
Learn about different types of glues.
Make some 3D hot steam-bent laminations
Laminate Glass Fibre into the wood for increased stiffness and strength
Laminate over an internal steel frame for amazing results that defy gravity
Learn about powered carving tools for fast finishing and freedom of form
 
 
This course is the day before the 'Follow-On' Steam Bending course and could be taken as a 2-day course.   We only introduced this process into the professional course recently and have not taught much of this content before.
