Horn Bending

You will learn: The use of horn, historical and contemporary design Material and tool basics...
Working natural materials is as old as humanity itself, with animal bones, horns and hides being made into useful objects since the dawn of man. The natural beauty and play of colours of cow horn is particularly impressive for this. The interesting quality of this material is its bendability - almost like that of thermoplastic polymers. This course focuses on horn bending. Students will create small bowls and other objects such as hair combs, small receptacles or trinkets.
You will learn:
  • The use of horn, historical and contemporary design
  • Material and tool basics
  • Working with horn
  • Bending horn
  • Polishing
