Chip Carving Patterns
with Keunho Peter Park

April 13, 2019
@ The Center for Art in Wood

Join us for a one-day workshop learning the art of Chip Carving Patterns with artist Keunho Peter Park. This is a traditional technique for creating decorative patterns on wooden surfaces and Park will guide you in chip carving using just a few simple hand tools. Participants will receive two carving knives, and a wooden 4×6” photo frame to embellish with their chip carving pattern.

Keunho Peter Park is an international artist, woodworker, and instrument maker who teaches at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He holds a B.F.A in painting from South Korea’s Kookmin University and an M.F.A. in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Park is also the recipient of the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show’s Wharton Esherick award and the Windgate resident artist at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

The Center for Art in Wood is a non-profit arts organization located in Philadelphia that nurtures and promotes the innovation of art in wood through collaborative residencies, exhibitions, education, and documentation.
