This course takes a highly practical look at the classic method of wood moulding. All methods of bending solid wood are explored in the course, ranging from bending thin pieces on bending irons, knotting and twisting thin strips and even more complex devices like the steam box. You will learn all about the properties of different wood types (split and sawn wood, round wood, chamber-dried and freshly harvested wood) and the results they produce. Practical exercises will help you master the various bending techniques. Together we will fashion a number of models, for instance the back rest of a chair, bending and gluing a strip to form a round piece, or twisting squared timber by 90°. All of the participants will make their own bending strip with a template and will produce a curved object. Each participant will make his or her own template with a bending strip of 3 m and will produce an own curved object.
