   Posted by: woodbeecarver   in Class Announcements


Don will teach at Woodcraft of Dayton on Saturday, February 19, 2011 from 9 am to 5pm. Don teaches a completely different style of carving which he calls Whittle-Folk Carving. In this class you will learn his A-B-C’s of face carving using a 1 ½” x 3” block of basswood. The figure will be a larger version of the shelf squatter. Also, using a basswood hen egg, bottle stopper heads or bobble heads are other choice of projects for this one day class. Once you complete this project, you will understand the principles of whittling in folk art style. Don has some tutorials on his web page www.woodbeecarver.com that will help you prepare for this class. There are also some “Cool Links” for your further study. Don is an accomplished carver and an excellent teacher so this class promises to be a wonderful learning experience and a fun way to spend a Saturday. This is a beginner skill level class. Bring a carving glove and a small whittling knife. Cost is $70.00. You can sign up by e-mail at:  dayton-retail@woodcraft.com or call Woodcraft at (937) 438-1282
