Interest List  

Carving a Wood Spirt Class

July or August, depending on interest

Terry Burnside has been carving for 20 years and has done hundred + wood spirits.

Zoom Meeting - Link will be sent out when you register


This class has been taught twice now and when there is enough interest, a specific third class will be scheduled.  Those on this Interest List will be contacted directly to try to find a date and time that works for everyone, or at least the critical number of people.

This eventual class will have two sessions, one week apart.  

This class is designed for those not familiar with carving a wood spirit, beginners, delivered in two live Zoom sessions.  Terry developed his techniques over 20 years, learning from two different carving professionals.  The course is hands on, and the material will be wooden dowels you provide.  Students need a carving glove, strop and three carving tools - a carving knife, V tool and a deepish gouge gouges (like #11, #9 or #8) in 1/4 or 3/16 widths), palm or long handled. If you need tools, glove or strop we might be able to find loaners.  The class outline is:

  1. Introduction to carving and history of wood spirit carving
  2. Proportions of facial features for the size of the material
  3. Sharpening demonstration
  4. A demonstration of each step followed by carving time and QA – NOTE – This will occupy the most time
  5. Recap and list of wood spirit carving guides and materials
  6. Explore interest in future projects, such as the Green Man

On-Line Demo
