Woodcarving Course Begins September 11

Here's your chance to explore a new hobby, or pick up were you left off in your woodcarving past, taught by an experienced woodcarver and instructor. This is a beginner's class so no experience is needed. You'll be taken through the exercises cut by cut and learn basic techniques in carving. You will be able to use and become comfortable with the tools and techniques. Handouts and hand tools will be provided. This should be a fun class (after all, it's just a piece of wood) and no need to worry about mistakes, there are none, only "design changes". All supplies will be provided and a $20.00 supply fee is due to the instructor at the first class. Please bring pen, pencil and paper to class. Space is limited, please register early.
