Visiting Artist Workshops

Participate in a Visiting Artist Workshop at Trent Bosch Studios. We are excited to opening up our studio to instructors from around the world. Join us in Summer 2022 for our inaugural Visiting Artist Workshop with Laurent Niclot.

Laurent Niclot – September 7-9, 2022


Mini Forms and Surface Treatments with a focus on Woodburning and Coloring


In this three-day workshop Laurent will start by showing participants how to turn and hollow a variety of miniature forms using simple but effective tools. We will then take those objects and explore a multitude of possibilities in surface treatments – including woodburning, carving and texturing with rotary tools, sandblasting, etc. Techniques for coloring that will enhance the texture and carving will also be discussed and put to use. These include dry brushing, guilding wax, etc. Participants will go home with expanded knowledge in both turning and surface + a little bit of French.
