Kumiko Workshop with Matt Kenney

450.00

In Japan, doors, windows, and room screens are often decorated with a delicate wooden framework called kumiko. The beauty of these frames is enhanced by using small pieces of wood to create geometric or floral patterns in the framework. This same technique can be used in furniture making to add a beautiful detail to a door panel, table top, or cabinet base. Kumiko panels also make eye-catching wall art.

In this class, you’ll learn how to make a square framework, and the classic asa-no-ha infill pattern. I explain how I make the joinery for the framework, and then we’ll assemble a frame. After that, you’ll learn how to create the small pieces used to make the infill pattern, and then get to work making them for your panel. At the end of the day, you’ll have a beautiful panel.

Workshop is from 9am - 5 pm, on 2nd February 2019, at the Cooroora Institute, 780 Cooroy Belli Creek Rd, Black Mountain, QLD 4563. Tools and materials provided. Tea and coffee supplied - bring your own lunch. For more details ring Ross 0407 489 227.
