Spend a relaxing and creative weekend, as you learn the art of woodcarving. We’ll begin with a discussion of carving tools and their care. The instructor will provide your choice of a basswood or butternut blank for your class project. In addition, he will cover bird patterns, transferring them, and cutting out blanks. Step-by-step instructions for carving a Bluebird, installation of eyes and feet, finishing, and mounting will be included.
After retiring as Director of Horticulture for the Green Bay Botanical Garden in 2002, Jerry Landwehr resumed his love of carving and began taking classes. He tried a wide variety of styles and techniques before focusing his efforts on birds, beginning with primitive and moving to more realistic carving. Splitting his summer time between Washington Island and De Pere, WI, while residing in Florida each winter Jerry teaches classes to students ranging from beginning to advanced carvers.No tags for this post.
