INTEREST LIST - will be a class a bit later
We want to schedule another beginner's spoon carving class now that we've successfully completed the pilot class. Register to express your interest.
This is a class for beginners to learn the basics of carving spoons. Everyone will carve a simple shape first, then have options for exploring variations. The outline is:
- Class goals
- Grain Observations
- Tool Maintenance
- Carving Techniques
- Prepare the spoon blank with your pencil
- Get Carving
TOOLS - Loaner tools are provided, but few are needed and students will be encouraged to invest in their own, before or after the class.
COVID - The class is online until the pandemic cases dramatically subside.
TUITION - Pilot class tuition is $15 and is lower than subsequent classes.
WOOD - Instructor provided, a $5 material fee. Basswood or Alaska Yellow Cedar will be used. These need to be picked up a little north of Beaverton, but they can be mailed if postage is reimbursed.
INSTRUCTOR - Al Plasch - Al is a club member in Ventura, CA. He is past president of their local club and has taught beginners in a variety of settings for years. Teaching and learning over Zoom is a new experience for many, so be prepared for many successes and a few frustrations.
