Steam Bending

Steam bending is a fun, efficient process that has been utilized in the construction of boats for generations. In this workshop, we will break down the process so that it is easily repeatable for the student to implement at home. Gain a real-world lesson in biology and chemistry as we talk plant structure and how the steaming process helps the builder tie wood into a knot. We’ll also demonstrate processes that utilize the steam maker, steam chamber, jigs, clamps, forms, and compression straps. At the end of the class, students will take home a new skill and hopefully a couple souvenirs.
