Old World Santas and "Thumbkins"
Date: Sunday, Oct 18 - Friday, Oct 23, 2020
Subject: Woodcarving
Instructor: Bart Mitcham
Share:

Carver's choice! Carve Santas in Old World style with personal touches, and/or try creating Thumbkins-thumb-size characters that may resemble kinfolk or people you know. Beginners will learn to use a flat-blade knife to carve in the round, while those with experience focus on improving techniques and discussing how to market your work. Safety is emphasized, but the atmosphere is fun and laid-back, allowing you to explore your creative side. Leave with at least one finished and painted figure.

Tuition: $564.00
