More Information on this Workshop

This class is designed to get students into the world of Carousel Horse carving and/or Mythic Creatures carving and don’t know where to start. In this intensive week Joe will cover a lot of territory including gluing up procedures, tool/chisel selection, proper sharpening and maintaining carving chisels. The students will have a choice of working on a ½ scale roughed out carousel horse and neck or a roughed-out dragon head and neck or a roughed-out unicorn head and neck. These rough outs will be provided by Joe. Having a rough out to start with makes the class less frustrating and more enjoyable as opposed to starting with a block of wood. Special attention will be given to carving a flowing mane and setting the glass eyes properly which tends to bring the animals to life. This will be a fun and informative class which will help refine your carving skills with one of the best carousel horse carvers and mythic creatures carvers in America today.
