Carve a House Quarterboard with Peter McKenna
Join Peter McKenna for a 4 day class to make your own personalized Quarterboard (House Sign). See details below.
Jun 29 - Jul 02, 2020
This class is designed for those wishing to carve a nameboard for their home or boat, similar to those seen on homes and boats in many coastal areas. Read Peter's Bio here.
Students will learn how to carve incised letters and numbers. Peter will also show you ways to finish off the ends of your nameboard. Once you have the hang of it, you will be able to layout and carve a nameboard of your choice and design.
