Workshop

Description

Limit: 6 Students

Fee: $425.00

Designed for novice-to-intermediate students, this workshop emphasizes the tools & techniques for relief woodcarving used in the creation of Early American carvings. It gives beginning students a good foundation in traditional woodcarving & intermediate students the opportunity to build on their skills. Through demonstrations, exercises & individual hands-on instruction students learn to adapt & transfer a historical design; the various uses of woodcarving tools, how to get & keep them sharp; the proper use & control of tools for incising, setting in, grounding & surface modeling, plus wood types & finishing options.

Wood, basic tools & prepared designs are provided. Intermediate students are invited to bring their own tools & to speak with Deborah in advance if they would like to work on their own designs. Because class size is limited & our setting informal, Deborah can respond to each student's goals & instruct them one-on-one. We have ample inspiration surrounded by Early American buildings and furnishings!

Deborah Mills, Brooklyn NY-based custom woodcarver with over 18 years of professional experience.
