Kumiko Speaker Class

June 1st, 6-10pm

Traditional Japanese woodworking is famous for it’s precise joinery that requires no hardware or glue to maintain strength. This technique is also used to create intricate, wooden, functional artwork known as Kumiko, which is used within Japanese style-rooms to create a stunning atmosphere. In this four-hour class you will make and take home a small powered speaker with a Kumiko face to liven up your cooking, working or playing!

Set yourself up for further metalsmithing success as you learn how to bezel set stones after making a ring or pendant. Choose a matte or high polished finish and walk away wearing or gifting your piece.
