Hand Carved Wooden Signs

Course Overview

Personalize any place by creating a hand-carved wooden sign. Woodcarver Jock Holmen will teach the entire sign-making process, from proper design to layout, letter and incise carving, painting and finishing options while students work on a personal project. Whether it will hang at the cabin, the garden, a business or a man-cave, a handcrafted sign is a great addition. Instruction will include both incised and raised letters. Day one focuses on design and layout, with days 2 and 3 spent carving the sign. Finishing options will be discussed in detail so that students will leave with a clear idea of how to paint and complete their carved sign. The instructor will contact students ahead of time to discuss their projects: some limitations due to time and materials. Maximum project size, 48”x12”.
