Special Event

Carving for Kids

Course Overview

This is a course for kids only, and it is designed as an introduction to the safe and efficient use of the knife as a carving tool. Many craftspeople are interested in reversing the stigma that knives often carry in contemporary modern society, one that identifies them as weapons. We hope to restore the knife’s place (as it exists in many other cultures of the world) as a tool that was designed to help people, not to harm them. Kids in this course will learn to safely use sharp knives for carving wood. They will gain the confidence to use these tools in the correct way, and to respect and to care for them. We will give examples of various uses for the knife here at North House, hoping to inspire a passion for making things.
