March 4-9, 2014

Let the woodchips fly! Our first ever Woodcarver’s Week is on the books for early March 2014. For the first time ever, we’re introducing a week devoted solely to woodworking in its many forms.

Classes will kick off on Wednesday, and continue throughout the week. On Saturday, all students will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with other carvers & instructors and options to choose from a variety of mini-courses on milk paints, sharpening, and sheath making, or a snowshoe hike through the winter woods to learn how to spot material in the field, a trip to the Grand Portage National Monument or simply hang out and carve with fellow enthusiasts. Coursework will resume on Sunday. Registration for any of the two or three day Woodcarver’s Week courses also includes participation in Saturday mini courses and excursions. More information will be provided upon registration.
