Intro to Wood Carving II, Moving Parts, Captive Ring

Intro to Wood Carving II, Moving Parts, Captive Ring

Apprehensive about trying those old “whittlin' tricks"? Don't be! In this class, students will learn to carve a free-moving captive ring from a single block of wood. You'll practice a variety of carving skills that can be applied across a wide variety of carving projects. Most students at least get their ring freed, and begin refining during the class session. More experienced carvers may also begin additional decoration.
