Spend a relaxing and creative time learning the art of woodcarving. We’ll begin with a discussion of carving tools and their care. Your project choice will be either a Chickadee or maple cane with a carved handle. Step-by-step instructions for carving are included, and for the Chickadee, installation of eyes and feet, finishing and mounting. Also covered will be patterns, transferring them and cutting out blanks. If you prefer to bring a work in progress, Jerry will offer his advice and guidance.
After retiring as the Director of Horticulture for the Green Bay Botanical Garden in 2002, Jerry Landwehr resumed his love of woodcarving and began taking classes. Trying a wide variety of techniques and styles, he focused his efforts on birds, beginning with primitive and moving to more realistic carving. Jerry splits his time between Washington Island, De Pere, WI and Florida where he teaches classes to students ranging from beginning to advanced carvers.
