Figure Carving: Scandinavian Style   

Beginning and experienced carvers will enjoy this opportunity to focus on figures carved in the Scandinavian flat-plane style. Tool sharpening and the history of carving are presented at the start of the course and the instructor will lead you through an initial figure in step-by-step fashion. Students can then carve an additional piece of their choice with individual assistance from the instructor. Painting, natural oils, and wax finishes will also be covered. For inspiration, the instructor will display the works of Scandinavian carvings from such woodworkers as Trygg, Gunnarrson, Larsen, Henning, Peason, and more. Additional wooden cutouts may be purchased directly from the instructor each day. Cost of each cutout will be approximately $5.
