Get a taste of woodcarving in this one-day, in-person class. This quick overview to the fundamentals of woodcarving will introduce you to the tools, terminology and concepts of working with green wood. With a carving knife in hand, you’ll practice simple knife grips and maybe even finish a small butter spreader on ASI’s front lawn. This is a great opportunity for new carvers to try out a Scandinavian style carving knife and find out if woodcarving is a good fit for them! Open to ages 16 and up; ages 12-15 welcome alongside a registered adult.

This course will be held outdoors on ASI’s front lawn, with provided shade and appropriate safety and social distancing measures. Tools are provided but students may also bring their own. If this class is cancelled due to poor weather, students will receive a full refund.
