Welcome to Summer Arts Studio by UW – Madison. Engage in an inten­sive one-week work­shop taught by our art depart­ment faculty. In this course, students will be intro­duced to both the mate­r­ial and tech­niques to safely trans­form rough boards into a bandsaw box on a stand and stool. Through these two projects students will learn how wood works, basic wood­work­ing joinery, shaping, and carving along with the tools and machines of the wood­shop. I strive to teach in a way that allows for all levels and abil­i­ties to learn in thought­fully, safely, and crit­i­cally in a studio that can be intim­i­dat­ing for some. This course will be fun and fast paced, with plenty of room for folks who find comfort in making func­tional work, those who want to explore sculp­tural work, and those who are just looking to try some­thing new. Students will design and build work that excites and chal­lenges them and will allow them to grow their artis­tic voice and wood shop skills.

This work­shop is taught by Sylvie Rosen­thal, a teacher of wood­work­ing at the Univer­sity of Wiscon­sin-Madison and construc­tion at Madison College. Sylvie’s work has been featured at The Fuller Craft Museum, The Mint Museum, and the Museum of Art and Design.
