Two Day Class (January 19-20)

Skill Level: Novice / Beginner / Refresher

Class Size: Six (6) students minimum; Ten (10) students maximum

Prerequisites: No woodcarving experience needed. Individuals with prior training and/or experience, who want a refresher on chip carving fundamentals, will also benefit.

Description: Students will learn the foundational skills and techniques of this decorative art form. People often say, "I could never do that" when seeing a Chip Carved piece. Arguably, it's the easiest of all woodcarving styles to learn.

History: Chip Carving has been done for centuries, originating in Northern Europe, as a way to add beauty and personalize handmade wooden objects ranging from architectural building components to kitchen cabinet doors and other household items like cookie presses, decorative plates and bowls _ even wooden shoes.

Accomplishments: Each student will learn proper knife sharpening, knife holding techniques, and how to "read" grain direction. Using the included basswood Study Board*, students will learn to carve two-sided (canoe-shaped) and three-sided (triangle-shaped) "chips" and how to use them in various patterns, borders, and rosettes. More challenging forms will be added, including; leaves and flowers, grids, and lettering. Finally, we'll begin work on the Ready-to-Carve™ 3.5" Coaster.

Registration by phone or in person: Klingspor's Woodworking Shop, 856 21st St. Dr. SE. Hickory, NC (828) 326-9663

Costs:
Tuition $159, due at the time of registration to assure a place in the Class.
Study Board and Project Board, 10% discount when purchased at the Store on any day the Class is in session.

Materials and Supplies: The Instructor will provide, for Class use, everything needed including; 1) Knives 2) Measuring, design, and layout tools 3) Pattern transfer paper, pencils, and erasers, and 4) Finishing products as needed. Wayne Barton Premier Cutting Knives and Stab Knives are available for purchase at the Store for students who wish to own their own Chip Carving Knives.
