VIRTUAL HOOLIE PROGRAMME
In our second year of going virtual, we've been building a programme that brings together trainer from Scotland, the UK, across Europe, Israel and the United States - a nearly global experience! We'll be adding details as we get them, but you'll see the basic programme outline below.
Our confirmed sessions are listed below, with some still to add. Ticket holders will be sent a link to book on to sessions, where you'll find more details about what the trainers are planning. Each session will last up to 90 minutes. The main room will be open all day for general carving and chat.
Hoolie opening ceremony!
Paul will open proceedings and give you a quick run down of the programme.
8.00pm: Emmet Van Driesche
Functional Considerations of Spoon Forms
In this talk, Emmet will be drawing spoon shapes and talking about form and the constraints placed on it by grain, size and tools.
Join us around the virtual camp fire to share your lockdown stories and mix with friends, old and new.
