Our November meeting will be Wednesday, November 1st, at 7 PM. We are thrilled to have Rebecca DeGroot demonstrating how she makes her “walking teapots”!
Rebecca will guide you through the process of creating a walking teapot. After a discussion of form, aesthetics, proportions, movement, and hypothetical functionality, she will review required tools and materials. Rebecca will start by turning the body and fitted lid of the teapot, leaving extra material where needed, and will show two unique processes of creating legs for the teapot. You will learn her process of creating a split hollowed spout to be attached later, as well as creating the handles of both the body and the lid and any extra sculpted components. Many parts of the body, legs, handles, and added components will need to be carved before assembly. Rebecca will conclude with finish options and teapot assembly.
Rebecca DeGroot started woodworking with her father at a very young age and continued to refine her skill through college. Six years after graduating with bachelor’s degrees in Art Education and Sculpture and Functional Art, Rebecca divides her time between her full-time career as an art educator and her passion for woodworking.
Please join us this Wednesday, November 1st, to welcome Rebecca and learn how she designs and constructs her amazing creations!
Note: The Demo + 2 Raffle Tickets Bundle option is only available for FSW or DelVal Members.
