We are a group of enthusiastic wood carvers who want to preserve and pass on the art of carving to the next generation through classes and demos for beginners, intermediate and advanced carvers.

We strive to help carvers expand the breadth and depth of their knowledge and skills by offering new carving experiences as well as expert advice and educational and mentoring opportunities for those who want grow in a specific technique.

November 9 - Carving Tips and Techniques

Eric Owens

Eric Owens is a carving instructor and a leader of the Idaho Woodcarvers Guild.  His day job as a high school science teacher translates naturally to teaching carving at the Boise Woodcraft store, club classes in Idaho, and some in Oregon and Washington.  Eric will share tips, techniques and biases on a variety of topics including caricature carving, modified flat plane techniques, idea generation, drawing, safety, sharpening and creating prototypes.  There will also be bits of demos and of course time for Q&A.

He has two articles on caricature carving in Woodcarving Illustrated (issues 83 & 88), and has a hundred YouTube videos covering a dozen projects (search “Eric Owens carving” on YT).

Please register so we can notify you if there are any changes.
