We arrived back home from a 3-week trip to England and Germany late Monday evening. It was an amazing trip – met some great people, ate fabulous food, and saw some of the most beautiful wood and stone carvings. Now I have to sort through several thousand photographs and try to remember where they were all taken.
I taught a beginning woodcarving class at Dictum in Munich, Germany. They have an incredible store where they sell a wide range of hand and machine woodworking tools. Check out their website. If you can’t find it at Dictum, it’s probably not out there. My husband spent several hours drooling over their tools.
Peter Lanz, who organizes the classes and school, is a great guy and helped a lot in translating during the class. Although most of the students spoke English, and woodcarving is sort of a universal language – sometimes words just aren’t needed!
The students did a great job during the class and we worked through 4 complete projects in 3 days that covered a wide range of woodcarving skills. Maybe because I didn’t ramble on as much during this class, they had more time to carve 🙂
