#IDVWORKSHOPS: RSVP for Lemon Reamer Wood Carving Workshop with Melanie Abrantes

Join us the afternoon of Sunday, August 2nd for a Lemon Reamer Wood Carving Workshop with Oakland-based designer, Melanie Abrantes.

Melanie will lead you in hand carving your own wooden lemon reamer using traditional Japanese tools and techniques. The class will start with a discussion of wood types, an explanation of the tools required, and an overview of the techniques used to cut wood. Once you have acquired a basic understanding, Melanie will guide you in designing and whittling the handle and top of the lemon reamer blank. When your final design has been reached, you'll sand and finish your citrus reamer with an all-natural finish. 

After you've finished carving, you will be taught how to use it in a cocktail demonstration!

All tools will be provided to use during the workshop, with the option of purchasing tools to continue practicing at home.

Space is limited, so RSVP now to claim your spot!
