*NEW Wood Carving Workshop with Eric Petitclerc
January 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm$195.00
A great beginners workshop: Come and learn the basics of wood carving! We will work with green wood (wood that is fresh, soft and easy to carve). In our day together, you’ll have time to complete a project, so you’ll go home with a spoon that is carved and ready to dry.
Wood and a selection of tools will be provided so you’ll have the opportunity to experiment.
The day together will include:
-Introduction and theory to better understand wood fibers and properties
-Description of some tools and techniques, and a demonstration of how to make a spoon with hand tools
-Hands-on carving all together
-Lunchbreak (please bring a bagged
lunch and full water bottle)
-Continue carving together, with a sharpening station available
With this new skillset, you will feel ready to shop for your own simple tools, select wood, and go on to carve more spoons, chopsticks, a little bowl—you decide!
