Learn wood sculpting techniques using simple hand tools! This class covers how to use hand saws, gouges, mallets, spoke shaves, draw knives, rasps, files, and more. We will also discuss color, tool sharpening, and how you can have a woodcarving practice at home. Students will begin with low-relief and texture carving to learn how the tools work, and then design and create in-the-round carvings in basswood. This class is a great starting point for learning to express yourself in wood without expensive machines.
