CORE SKILLS: Steam Bending & Laminating

Straight lines are all well and good but sometimes you need a bit of flare in your work. Curves add movement, strength and a sense of lightness to a project.

We'll teach you how to manipulate timber using laminating, dry heat, kerfing and of course, steam.

The main project is an homage to Tom Raffield with this take on one of his steam bent lamps.
