Whittle a Swedish Dala Horse

Sunday, July 12, 2020 from 12:30pm to 3:30pm
Class Size: 8
Hands on class

Dating back centuries and popularized internationally since the mid 19th Century, the carved Dala horse has been an iconic symbol of Swedish hemslojd - handicraft. Some scraps of wood, a sharp knife and some long winter nights were all the Swedes needed to whittle out this beloved tradition of crafting children's toys that has lasted for centuries. In this class, renowned wood figurine carver Jim LeClaire will help you whittle and carve your own Dala horse. This is a perfect beginning carving / whittling project that uses minimal tools, but will let you learn and practice knife whittling skills to set you on your way for a hobby of wood carving. Jim will show basic techniques for controlled, safe cutting, give pointers on sharpening and share tips for painting your newly carved Dala horse at home.

Tool Required: Flexcut Roughing Knife
