Linda Ferber - Embellishment with Carving and Painting

Linda Ferber has been turning for over twenty years and enjoys the creative possibilities and personal challenges woodturning provides. The opportunity to try woodturning presented itself back when her Dad had an auction including his shop equipment. Linda purchased his lathe, thinking that with this one piece of equipment she could create with wood. With no previous experience with a lathe, she took a bowl turning class and found the local chapter of the AAW. Looking back that one impulse purchase at an auction has made a big impact on her life.

Linda is a member of the Minnesota Woodturning Association and the American Association of Woodturners. AAW Committee member of Women in Turning (WIT) and Youth Committee

Mark making is a term used to describe the different lines, patterns, and textures that are made visible as a manifestation of applied or gestural energy. It is the gestural "language" of the artist.

Express yourself with energy and individuality. Start by making sample boards, getting familiar with your tools to improve your skill and clarify your marks.

In this demo I hope to inspire you to explore power carving. I will show you my three favorite burrs and how they can be used to create several patterns.

The piece I will be working on is a mushroom. With this mark making the goal is to create patterns and textures that you will be able to use effectively with a dry brush painting technique,
