Coopering, a technique traditionally used to make buckets and barrels, has been adapted to other contexts with exciting results. In furniture and sculpture, coopering allows us to construct custom curves without the use of steam, heat, or force. We will look at diverse examples of coopering used by contemporary craftspeople, both in wood and across other mediums. We will talk about the conceptual potentials of coopering, and how the instructor uses this technique to propose alternative narratives around space, power, and belonging. Finally, Phoebe will show how she creates her work in her compact apartment studio with minimal machinery.
