    Want to go deeper with spoon carving? Join us for six weeks of in-person workshops with Liesl Chatman to focus on the following:

    • spoon design:  bowl shapes, handle shapes, crank profile, getting a bowl thin that feels great in your mouth; strength/durability.  
    • axe work:  starting blanks with cranks/profile not plane view (!), axing out profiles for multiple spoons in one blank, axe body positions, hewing cuts, safety. 
    • straight blade technique:  grips that work for all bodies/low hand strength/old hands; cutting short and long facets; knife design as connected to the cuts you can/can't make (but not crazy edge geometry or sharpening). 
    • Curved blade technique: safety, wood grain, different sweep designs.
    • Finishing cuts and decorative elements:  finials, neck/bowl transitions, facets, underside of bowl, e.g. rat-tails

    Feel free to bring your favorite tools  or materials, but we will provide everything if you don't have a your own gear and wood yet!

Her background as a handlettering artist and graphic journaler are large influences in her kolrosing and designs of spoon forms.

    It can be hard to find just the right picture frame--especially for one-of-a-kind art--and custom frames are expensive. Solve that problem by learning how to build your own! We'll use the table saw, chop saw, and drill to construct basic frames out of poplar. Students should come to class with dimensions of the piece they want to frame, and we'll take it from there!

    Students will pre-pay for materials- although if you'd like to make more than one, the cost difference can be paid the day of class to Kate.

    ​​Learn western-style block carving and printing with minimal tools at home, and make a set of prints/cards/stationery. We will learn about how to think in relief, utilize wood grain in design, how to transfer designs to a block, the techniques and different effects of the five basic carving tools and how to handle ink and paper and methods for printing using tools you have at home.

    We will print in one color. Follow-up materials lists and resources will be sent to students looking to print more at home (including on fabric, like tea towels! Pillow cases! T Shirts!). 

    To maximize the time we have for carving questions, please prepare a 4x6 design (landscape or portrait orientation) for your block in advance. A design on paper can be transferred to the block so that the print will be the same orientation as the paper drawing, so any lettering in your design should be right-reading. Simple designs with bold image areas/texture that work with the grain (think fur, bark, a cloudy sky, or water...rather than curly-cues) without lettering are recommended. You will receive an email from your instructor, jessiemerriam@gmail.com, with more guidance around block design in advance of class.

    The remaining spots include 2 free seats for the BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) community to take this course at cost for the materials fee of $20. Fireweed  believes in wealth redistribution while our nation has still not offered proper reparations to marginalized communities.  The course registration will be waived for individuals who identify as BIPOC.

    Course materials include:

    About Sheilla in her own words:

    My name is Sheilla, I am a Brazilian woodworker who fell in love with wood at a violin making workshop in Cambridge, 2010. Later I got very interested in marquetry so I took every course I could find in Brazil. 

    There are so many types, styles and techniques in marquetry. They can bring different possibilities to woodworking. 

    For the past years I have  been teaching how to apply these techniques in jewelry and I also have started a small business to sell my work and create new projects from wood wastes that combine marquetry techniques and my creative process.

    **broom makers:  if you would like to purchase broomcorn, we have 1 pound bundles available for sale at $10 each.  Remember to bring your own twine, knife and foot winder.  

    **Spoon carvers:  if you took a class with Fireweed this year or in the past, or have some prior experience, we will welcome you!  Happily, we DO  have a few blanks available this time -- we would ask for  $10 per blank.  Please be prepared to bring other tools to finish (locally, you can purchase knives and gloves at Jack's Hardware and Farm Supply)
