March 7 & 8 I will be at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking in Manchester, CT to teach a weekend carving class. This is open to beginners and experienced woodcarvers. Come join us in the fun! There are spaces still available.
For those who are beginners, we will be going through all the basic carving techniques to get you started in an incredibly fun new art. Trust me, I’ve been doing this for over 22 years, and still have fun! We’ll cover how to sharpen gouges to a razor sharp edge, safety techniques of carving, how to work in the correct grain direction, and how to carve a floral design in relief.
If you have carved before, bring something to work on and I’ll help you through it. Or you can also follow along as a “review” with the beginning carving project. There’s always more you can learn!
Come join in the balmy March weather in CT. I’m sure it will be warmer than here in SC 🙂
