David is offering 5, 1-day carving Seminars for beginning to advanced carvers. However, it is recommended students sign up for 3 days, which do not have to be contiguous, in order to complete the project. Students may pick from over 20 rough outs of hatching dragons or other critters.
Your projects will be carved using knives, gouges and other hand tools. There are multiple methods for texturing your projects, i.e. woodburning, power or carving tools (however no power needed!).
Bring a rotary tool and a dust collector or wood burner if you intend to use them for texturing. If you don’t
have either, a few will be available from the Instructor. For any questions you may have, please contact
David at: firstname.lastname@example.org
