Workshop Description: This is a two-day workshop with Slickbald and Robert Beard. On Day 1 with Slickbald, you’ll cut and carve a floral pattern into a picture frame, creating lively contours through the use of bevelers, backgrounders, lifters, etc., and understanding how to carve with perspective for a “natural” look. You’ll then cut out the frame to prepare it for Day 2. On Day 2, Robert will lead you through the creation of one of his popular 3D desert scenes, which use real turquoise stone and colors. Towards the end of the workshop, you’ll insert the finished 3D “diorama” into the frame you completed on Day 1 and put a finish on the whole project. (Note: Days 1 or 2 may be taken as stand-alone workshops.)

Materials to bring: Maul/mallet, swivel knife and blades, filigree chisels and/or #11 X-Acto knife, French edger, figure bevellers, common beveller, small pear shaders, veiner, leaf liner, small under beveller, horizontal thumbprint, strop, cutting board, #4 pointed paintbrush, artist’s palette and stamping stone. Floral stamping tools: bevelers, veiners, pear shaders, cams, mule foot, lifter or undercutter, backgrounders and stops. Robert will have Pro Series Tools for students to try/purchase.
