Spend a relaxing and creative time learning the art of woodcarving. After a discussion of carving tools and their care, you will choose a project: a Pileated Woodpecker or maple walking stick with a carved handle. Step-by-step instructions for carving are included, installation of the bird’s eyes and feet, finishing and mounting, as well as creating pattern 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 now enjoys sharing this by teaching classes to students ranging from beginning to advanced carvers.
