Green Man Chip Carving

July 15 and July 16, 2017 (2 days; 9am-5pm)
Green Man Chip Carve Instructor: Bill Johnson - Professional Chip Carver and Instructor.
Class Description: The Chip Carving style of woodcarving is a great choice for anyone who wants to personalize his or her work in a unique and attention-getting way. In this beginner level class, students who have had no prior Chip Carving experience or wish to brush up on what they have previously learned, will learn and practice fundamental techniques that have been applied over many centuries to decorate everything from architectural building components to household items and wooden shoes. Bill will take each student, step-by-step through the processes of knife sharpening and proper holding, pattern layout, and how to remove the essential two and three sided chips, and "free form" designs (leaves, flowers, etc.), that give chip carving its unique appearance. He'll also touch on grids, and lettering as time allows.
Class Size: Six (6) students minimum, ten (10) students maximum.
