Off Site Beginning Woodcarving for the Randall Museum


Experience the satisfaction of shaping wood while learning traditional woodcarving techniques and how to use sharp tools safely. You’ll begin by carving a simple low relief project that’s designed to teach you the fundamental skills you’ll need to carve more complex projects. After completing the beginning project, you may carve a second relief carving of your own design, choose from several patterns available, or carve a 3 dimensional sculptural piece that is stack laminated. The second carving could be a mask, a figure (animal or human), a carved sign or something utilitarian, such as a spoon or wooden bowl. There will be a materials fee of $40 due to the instructor on the first day of class. This fee includes wood for the beginning project, materials for a second piece and the use of carving tools during class time. There will be wood available for purchase if you have a larger piece you’d like to carve. No class 3/30.
