Instructor: Paul Rolfe
June 23rd: 9 am - 5 pm and June 24th: 1 - 5 pm.
Relief carving is the act of "relieving" a design from a usually flat background. The third dimension in space is either greatly reduced as in the case of shallow or bas relief, or it is fully carved as in the case of deep relief carving. In this class you will learn the traditional approach to relief carving including the topics of design, layout and execution using gouges and a mallet. Once you learn these basic skills, you will be able to produce your own classic designs in wood on panels and furniture.

Class cost covers both days.
