Dream To Learn The Art Of Woodcut
"I have a Dream to learn the Art of Woodcut. I have so much stress lately from schoolwork, problems with family and friends, and merely the whole scheme of things."
This dream to learn the Art of Woodcut seems to be my unconscious mind, talking to me about the solutions to all my anxieties. Woodcut is a therapeutic and peaceful therapy for me. Wood and its grainy sight and the prospects of creating something beautiful out of wood mystify me. Here in Los Angeles, what are my options? What are the top places to learn Woodcut in Los Angeles?
1) Allied Woodshop. It's at 407 E Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles. I have friends who are into the woodworking classes, and they're just anticipating with excitement every upcoming class! They exclaimed that they go home with beautiful cutting boards and proper safety techniques in using the machines every time they're finished with the lessons. They say it's just a so refreshing experience!
2) LA Woodshop. It's located at 1535 Paloma Street, Los Angeles. I have read reviews about people who say that they took whole day Saturday classes for Woodcut. They commented that it was one of their best weekend experiences ever because they had a great time and learned so much. Explanations were very clear for every step, and they were able to create simple wood projects session after session. Now, they're looking forward to more complex woodworking projects!
3) Cerritos College Woodworking. You can find it at 11110 Alondra Boulevard, Norwalk, CA. Some students wrote that Mr. Fortner, the Woodcut instructor, was just a revelation to work with! He is very knowledgeable and skilled and makes the complicated steps look easy to do. They said that his attitude makes them love Woodcut and the wonders it does to their psyche.
I am so confused, but this kind of confusion is wonderful because I choose among pleasant options to attain my Woodcut Dream. Woodcut is a skill I have never owned, but my dream is nudging me to drive to these schools and fulfill a dream within reach.
