Beginning Chip Carving

Beginning Classes are designed for those who have little or no carving experience. These classes concentrate on how to properly sharpen tools, the basic techniques of chip carving, and executing essential patterns and designs, with emphasis on how to create borders, grids, rosettes, lettering, and free form ideas.

Intermediate / Advanced Chip Carving

Intermediate/Advanced Classes are for those who have a working knowledge of chip carving. This class is dedicated to design and application. Here we learn the various aspects of design, including balance, contrast, and proportion. Students are encouraged in creating their own designs with assistance in executing the finished work.
