Wood Carving Tutorial

Break out the v-gouges and chisels! This tutorial format course is a great opportunity to get going on a new carving project or finish up something you’ve already started, all under the expert guidance of instructors Phil Odden and Else Bigton. Phil and Else specialize in Nordic-style carving and will have a variety of projects to choose from, or bring something you’ve already started that needs assistance and motivation to complete. Possibilities are wide, including carving in the round, ale bowls, Nordic relief carving, dragon heads/motifs or acanthus-style carving. Instruction in tool selection, sharpening and finishing techniques is included. Tools may be available for loan and/or purchase.
