Grades 6-8

Invented by Charles and Ray Eames, vacuum-forming is a process of glueing together layers of flexible plywood and using a vacuum as a 'clamp' to create flowing and curving wooden shapes. We'll be investigating this process as we make a small stool from scratch by creating a foam forming jig, and using a vacuum-cleaner to pull down layers of bending plywood to your shape, then sanding and sealing to have a functional stool.

Workshop Dates: 11/23, 11/30, 12/7, 12/14, 12/21, 1/4, 1/11, 1/25 No workshops 12/28 for Winter Break or 1/18, MLK Day!
