Wooden Pipe Carving Workshop 4/20



Learn how to make your own wooden pipe in celebration of 420 and Prop 64! Students must be 18 yrs old or older.

Designer Melanie Abrantes will lead students in hand carving their own wooden pipe using traditional Japanese tools and techniques. The class will start with a discussion of different wood types, an explanation of the tools required, and an overview of the techniques used to cut wood. Once students have acquired a basic understanding, Melanie will lead them in carving the bowl of the pipe with the spoon gouge, then designing and whittling the body of the pipe. When the final design has been reached, students will sand and finish their pipes with an all-natural finish.

All tools will be provided to use during the workshop, with the option of purchasing the tools at a discounted rate to continue your carving practice at home!
