Hand and Power Carving For The Kitchen
July 29, 2018 – August 4, 2018
Carving is a wonderful introduction to woodworking, combining both hand and machine work. In this workshop students learn to use hand tools such as chisels, gouges, rasps and files as well as power carving grinders to hollow, shape and develop a form. You will explore the joy of carving wood as well as incorporating mixed media into your projects using milk paint and image transfers. Your next meal might include a hand-carved spoon, bowl, serving platter, or other kitchen wares that you create! No previous woodworking experience required. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $595
