May 24-28, 2021
This 5 day class will be an opportunity for students of all skill levels to study under a wood carving master. Alexander will start the class off with an in-depth study of how to sharpen carving tools in the most efficient manner, followed with a lesson on how to think in 3-D when designing their project. They will then jump into their project, and learn to use the carving tools to first outline & define the carving, and then learn how to make the carving tools do a variety of cuts, even when the wood grain is not cooperating.
