Beginning Character Carving
Saturday, August 8, 2020 from 9:00am to 4:30pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

This beginner's class will jumpstart 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 through a comprehensive, step-by-step focus for carving characters so you can successfully bring forth a figurine from a block of wood. You'll learn layout and design, the proper techniques of roughing out and detailing using carving knives and 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 you'll do the finishing at home). Throughout the day you'll 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 another brand that come pre-honed and are ready-for-use right out of the box.)
