Arrowmont Adult Short Courses

Short courses will be held February 24-26.  The Monday to Wednesday classes also are held from 6:00 to 9:00 pm for a course fee of $90.  Here are the offerings:

Surfacing with A Smoothing Plane.  Students will learn the fundamentals of using wooden and metal smoothing planes to obtain wood surfaces ready for finish.

Nailed It:  Tool Making for Clay.  Ceramic  learners will make their own forming, trimming, and decorating tools.

Figure Sculpting.  Sculptures will learn how to sculpt the human figure in a naturalistic way using a live model.  The pieces will be fired and available for pickup a few weeks after the class.

Appalachian Broom Making.  Those who complete the class will leave with two different styles of brooms:  a cobweb broom and a hearth sweeper.

Complex Enameled Surfaces.  From graphite, sugar firing, and retexturing techniques, students will add to their enameling skill sets.

Framed Weaves:  Constructing and Using Your Own Frame Loom.  During this class, attendees will construct their own looms to fit their needs.  Then they will make a wall hanging, bath mat, or other small piece on their new looms.

Pairing an art class with the Buckhorn Inn’s Great Winter Escape is a great way to add creativity and relaxation to your winter!   Additional information on the 2020 classes may be found at http://www.arrowmont.org/classes
