Kolrosing is an old Scandinavian tradition dating back to Viking times and was most often used to decorate objects such as spoons, small bowls or boxes, cups, etc. A specially designed knife is used to cut fine lines into wood. Traditionally, coal was rubbed into these incised lines to enhance the design. We will be using instant coffee.
Students will become familiar with the kolrosing knife and working with and against the grain. Practice pieces of wood are provided. Students will then start tracing their final project onto a larger piece of basswood and incising.
Students can bring their own line design or use one of those provided by the teacher. Designs are not limited to traditional patterns - be creative!
All tools and materials are provided. Please bring a lunch and magnification if needed for this close hand work.
Tuesday March 12th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
