I will be teaching a class on detail carving and painting a life size Mockingbird. The class is for new and experienced carvers. We will go into anatomy, carving, burning, and painting the carving. We will be using rotary carving tools for the carving section, using various bits. Extra blanks will be available on a limited basis. The goal will be to complete a carving while having fun in the process. Included will be a blank, eyes, cast feet, pattern, and paint. The student will have to provide a mounting for the finished piece. I will include habitat creation where necessary.
