Relief Carving with Sabiha Mujtaba

Saturday, May 16 & Sunday, May 17 2020 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
Class Size: 6
Hands-On Workshop

Relief carving is the art of creating depth and the illusion of three dimensions in a relatively shallow plane of wood. Relief carvings can stand on their own as carved art, are often used to add detail and embellishment to furniture projects, or if shallow enough in depth, can be used in print making.
In this carving focused class, Sabiha will help you understand carving tool profiles and how to carve with them safely and efficiently. You'll learn how to transfer a design onto wood and how to plan out your cutting sequences so you can remove wood in the manner needed to best achieve your design objectives.
You will be learning the cutting strokes and tool techniques commonly used when carving a fan, a Celtic knot and even a design depicting a scene in perspective (suggesting distance). Pointers on tool sharpening will be covered. This class is for beginners as well as for intermediate students looking to deepen their skill set for relief carving.
