In this hands-on workshop, you will learn everything you need to know to start carving your own wood creations! We will demystify the properties of different woods and discuss how to choose the right wood for the job. We will look at carving tools and discuss where to get them, how to use them safely and how to sharpen and maintain them. And, last but not least, we will explore design ideas for starter projects! Everyone will have plenty of opportunity to experiment with various tools to get a feel for function and creating effects. Students will leave class with some wood for starter projects and a leather strap for sharpening and also with the enthusiasm and the confidence you need to start your own wood carved collection! Children 10 years and up are welcome with a registered adult. Intermediate student are also welcome to bring their projects in process to get assistance and work on while listening during the class.
