Wood Workshop

Whether your intention is a hobby or a professional pursuit, we teach woodwork to our students with an academic approach at Atölye20. You can join Atölye20 wood workshop with the goal of sculpting or creating objects you have designed. In the initial lessons, we first teach how to safely use the hand tools to work with on wood. We provide information about processes such as, measuring, cutting, carving, joining, sanding, filling, painting, and polishing wood. We start with simple object creation and gradually guide our students towards advanced woodcarving and creating sculpture.

In sculpture and object creation, pre-designing the project according to the material is crucial for both the construction process and the most efficient use of the material. Therefore, we start teaching the logic of proper planning and creating the project based on the material from the early lessons, before starting the project.
