Haven’t had a chance to blog yet since finishing a “Fundamentals of Woodcarving” class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Indianapolis, IN.
These classes are always great fun – for both students and teacher. Because it is 5 days, you really get to know each other, and by the end of the week, you feel like family. So it is always sad when the classes end and everyone goes their separate ways. It would be fun to have a type of “family reunion” down the road, and see how much carvings have been done, and just see each other again.
It was fun trying to break the engineers from the micrometer carving, and talking about “carving down about 1/8 inch” – drove them nuts! It was all a lot of fun, and lots of learning and carving.
I filmed a few of the demos I did during the class and hope to get these videos up on the video site soon. 2 of them are of carving different types of linenfold.
