Wood Carving Tutorial

Course Overview

Break out the v-gouges and chisels! This tutorial format course is a great opportunity to get going on a new carving project or finish up something you’ve already started, all under the expert guidance of instructor Phil Odden. Phil specializes in Nordic-style carving and will have a variety of projects to choose from, or bring something you’ve already started that needs assistance and motivation to complete. Possibilities are wide, including carving in the round, ale bowls, Nordic relief carving, dragon heads/motifs, or acanthus-style carving. Instruction in tool selection, sharpening, and finishing techniques is included. Tools may be available for loan and/or purchase. A materials fee may be due to the instructor during class, depending on project choice ($10 and up).

Required Tools

There are no required tools for this course, just bring whatever you like to use to carve.
