[FREE] Ash Splint Harvesting with Brendan Gaffney (Session #1)
April 23 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
The magic of rendering silken splint from rough blanks of ash wood is both an attainable and appealing method of making beautiful materials from green wood. Come watch and try your own hand at the process of riving, shaving, pounding and peeling ash splints by hand, using both methods long practiced and some new ideas and techniques developed more recently by myself. These demos will prepare even a novice green woodworker to yield their own splint for basket weaving or chair seat weaving.
