BEAVERCREEK, OHIO STUDENTSSurvivor Students of WHITTLE FOLK ART class in Whittle-Carving a Whittle Folk Monk met on Saturday August 23, 2008 at the carving studio of Sam Slagle.  In addition to Sam the other students were Karen Christian, Nancy Stevens, Brian Hasinger, Greg Thurston, Alan L. Wurstner, Mary Rose McCrate, Terry Borger, Ed Johnson, Jerry Kalifoot and Joe Lehman.  The class began with Whittling Exercise ABC’s of carving a ball on the end of a square stick to learn the basic “slicing cuts” and “knoch cuts” by carving a ball which became a means of learning how to  design and carve a human head that can be turned to be looking right or left, be looking up or down  or having the head tilted slightly.  The rest of the one day class was carving a three inch by one inch square block of basswood into a Whittle Folk Monk.  With good humor and intense work each student learned the fine art of “Whittling away time,” while having fun learning together.


Whittle Folk Monks were subject of the one day class.
