Intro to Wood Carving Class


Come take an introductory wood carving class with me!

Acanthus leaf class
Stylized Acanthus Leaf Carving

We will be carving this stylized acanthus leaf, which is a valuable thing to learn because acanthus leaf carvings are EVERYWHERE! Seriously, once you learn about them, you start seeing them on furniture, in architecture, on sculptures, and all over the place. We will carve this one in aspen, which is my new favourite carving wood. The course will last for approximately 3 hours.

Seminar details:

  • February 6, 2016
  • At the Lee Valley Store in Coquitlam, BC.
  • Cost: $60 each.
  • Bring your own tools, although tools are also available for use.

To see more details and register, go to the Lee Valley Carving Seminar site. I hope to see you there!
