Detailed Description

Beginning Character Carving
Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

This beginning class will jump start you on the skills needed to carve small 3 dimensional figurines. Caricature carving is a load of fun and provides a lot of carving latitude for creativity. Instructor Jim LeClaire has over 20 years of carving experience and will guide you thorough a comprehensive, step by step focus for carving characters, so you can sucessfully bring forth a figurine from a block of wood. Youll learn layout and design, the proper techniques of roughing out & detailing using carving knifes & palm chisels, as well as how to apply surface textures. In addition, Jim will share his simple methods of painting in detail for adding realism or whimsy that will help bring your carving to life (though youll do the finishing at home). Throughout the day youll also pick up some tips on maintaining a honed edge on your tools.

This class has a required list of tools you'll need to bring to class. If you are new to carving, we suggest Flexcut carving tools or a brand that come pre-honed & are ready-for-use right out of the box.)
