Class Description: Get into wood carving with an experienced carver and develop your skills with a wood carving knife. Anyone can learn wood carving if they’re willing to give it a try and take a little time and effort to practice the basic techniques taught in this introductory class. The instructor will demonstrate and explain the process of laying out a carving and creating the basic shape. Participants will work with the rough outs and begin carving their figures. This class is designed to for people who have never picked up a carving knife learn basic carving skills, safety techniques, tools, choose materials, and learn the basic layout process for carving on their own.
If you already have carving experience and would like to take an additional more challenging class with Ron please email: email@example.com and request a more advanced lesson.
