” WORKING WITH A STRAIGHT KNIFE AND A PIECE OF LOCAL HARDWOOD IS BOTH A RELAXING AND REWARDING EXPERIENCE!”
WEEK ONE: AN INTRODUCTION TO KNIFE CARVING
In this class, you will get acquainted with a carving knife ( Mora ) as you carve a butter paddle ( wood butter knife ). The five most common carving strokes will be taught and practiced in this first session. You will leave this class with a carved butter paddle!
