Dragonstyle is a fun and expressive style of relief carving. Becky has her own style of dragonstyle carving, influenced by the Viking Revival movement of the late 1800s. The project for this class will be a dragonstyle wall sconce. The photo here is a representation of the style to be carved in class. There will be a materials fee of approximately $30-$40.
