How to Make an Appalachian Dough Bowl
How to Make an Appalachian Dough Bowl - July 27th from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM - Price: $12
Workshop Instructor: Ronnie McWhorter

This is an informational learnshop that will teach how the Appalachian Dough Bowl was made in rural America in the 1700’s through the 1800’s. The goal of the learnshop is to give the students all the information they need to make an old-fashion dough bowl (Students will be observing and learning. They will not be making their own bowl). We will discuss: the types of wood available in the region and the reasons for choosing one over another, how to prepare the bowl blank that will allow the best chance of making a good bowl, why the ellipse or oval is the best design for a dough bowl and will demonstrate how to lay it out on the wood. We will be demonstrating the use of the old tools: the adze, gouge, mallet and scorp. Each student in the learnshop will have an opportunity for hands on use with safety in mind because these tools are very sharp.
