The Sculptural Box

On May 12th and 13th, join VisArts in welcoming seven guest artists from the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Each artist is a studio coordinator at Penland who will be taking over our studios and offering unique weekend workshops that bring new techniques and ideas to VisArts.

Explore wood as both a sculptural and functional medium. We’ll discuss the basics of designing with wood by creating boxes that are designed into imaginative forms with exciting surface treatments. You’ll develop safe and reliable skills, using both hand and power tools, while addressing aesthetic and technical issues.
