Akiko Okada - Smartphone Case

SHERIDAN STYLE SMARTPHONE CASE

TWO DAY WORKSHOP (MONDAY/TUESDAY).

MATERIAL COST $55.00

Akiko will teach the techniques to construct a beautiful, 5-card pocket phone case, carved in the Sheridan style. This case will fit any Smartphone/iPhone.

You will attach a slider (provided by Akiko) on the case to make it easy to take pictures with your phone, eliminating the need to cut a hole in the case for the lens.

Akiko will explain the Sheridan style, show you how to carve her design, how to dye the background, oil it in, apply lacquer and antique.

There are many carving styles and Sheridan is just one of them. There are noticeable characteristics of this style that separate it from other styles. The patterns follow a circular style and long flowing lines do not end abruptly; they feather to a taper. The background area for this style tend to be smaller, and the preferred tool is the bar grounder.
