Michelangelo once said: “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” You’ll learn how to look inside in this wood carving class. Come with a basic shape and we will rough it out of a piece of soft basswood. We will than carve and sand till you have your finished piece. You’ll learn the qualities of different carving materials and carving tools as well.
Please bring a dremel tool for cutting and sanding wood.
