This class will emphasize the need to draw out your projects in an effort to develop the skill of drawing. You will learn how to cut out your projects, how to carve and back cut, and how best to finish them. You may bring your own projects, or Steve will present more advanced ones. Those just finishing the beginning and intermediate acanthus carving class are welcome. Materials fees for the projects will range from $10-$100, depending on the difficulty and size.

Steve is a Vesterheim Gold Medalist.
