Carving Clinic Virtual Workshop
Some previous block carving experience required
Ever look at someone’s Insta-perfect carve and wonder how they do it? Let’s spend 90 minutes together and to talk tools and tool care and practice a few different techniques to improve your carving skills. I will provide you with shapes to transfer onto linoleum, rubber or vinyl and bring a variety of gouges and we can work together to make your carving dreams come true! Note: there is no design or printing in this workshop, just carving practice.
