Wood remains one of the most popular materials used for countless objects in our everyday lives. Whether it is a well-crafted wooden floor or artistic sculpture, working with wood is limitless. Participants will develop a wood design from 2D technical drawings, which will be cut and assembled by a carpenter. The resulting wooden artefact will then be painted; during this part of the workshop, participants will learn about primary colour theory and apply it to their wooden sculptures. By the end of the workshop, participants would have created a colourful wooden sculpture 30x30x10cm based on their 2D drawing.

You will learn the following:

  • Basic woodworking skills and techniques  
  • How to make a 3D design from a 2D drawing
  • Brush types and colour mixing
  • Basic physical balance for the 3-D composition
  • An opportunity to create artwork, and a chance to learn about the related tools and techniques
