Scandinavian Style Flat-Plane Figure Carving
This course provides beginning carvers with the opportunity to carve several figures in the Scandinavian flat-plane style. Beginning with tool sharpening, the course provides hands-on carving experience as you complete a figure in step-by-step fashion. You will then paint the figures and apply a final oil finish. After this initial figure, you will carve additional pieces independently while the instructor offers assistance on an individual basis. Sharpening equipment and finishing supplies are also covered. Band-sawn wooden cutouts may be purchased directly from the instructor and he will also have a supply of basic carving tools for purchase for students who do not have their own.
You will need the following tools for this class:
carving knife: Mora knife - $34.00, Murphy knife-$15.00 (available from the instructor and the North House Folk School Store)
Once registered, students will receive a confirmation packet in the mail that may offer additional optional tool recommendations and suggested reading.
