Interest List - Beginning Sharpening

This is NOT a class, just a place for you to express your interest in taking one in the future.


There is no obligation or cost to put your name on this list, except to dialog and explore further.  Those signing up here will be notified first when a class is scheduled.

Sharpening is intimidating to most new carvers.  This intended class is to get you started with stropping correctly and give you an essential foundation.  Other classes will eventually cover sharpening with stones and with power grinders.  Sharpening is a career-long journey; this is your chance to start learning the correct techniques.

DATES/TIMES - this will be a three hour in-person workshop with the relevant Covid restrictions at the time.  Supporting videos and a handout will be available.

COST - free


TOOLS - Students should bring their own tools if they are in decent shape, and bring their strop and honing compound, if they have them.  Practice tools and loaner strops will be available, and materials to make your own can be purchased at a fair price.
