This class series covers more advanced carving skills, and is designed for those with significant prior carving experience (a minimum of three years). This year’s project is an Acanthus Leaf Carving. (Students may alternatively work on a carving of their choice, to be guided by instructor, but must supply their own pattern and wood). Admission to this class level is with instructor approval only. Classes are taught by Doug Bathke, who has been carving for 54 years and teaching for 45 years. Fee includes instruction, pattern, and wood for group projects. Students must have their own tools, including two 6-inch (or larger) C-clamps, a non-slip pad, a pencil and a ruler.
