Carving Christmas Figures: a Tomte or Sankta Lucia

Course Overview

How about carving a wooden figure for the upcoming holiday season--either as a gift for someone special, or for yourself (since you are special too, right?). Harley, who says 'if you can peel a potato, you can carve a figure', will lead new as well as experienced carvers through the process of carving a Swedish tomte, or a Sankta Lucia figure, using primarily one single fixed-blade whittling knife. Learning the folklore of these cultural characters will be part of the experience.
