You will be able to choose from four different projects, utilizing dragonstyle carving techniques. These could be used for door casings, door headers, ends of eaves, or wall hangings. Let your imagination be your guide. There will be an optional sharpening session the evening before the class begins. There is a $25-$100 materials fee, based on the scale of the project chosen, which is payable to the instructor. The instructor will contact students prior to class to discuss their specific projects and expectations.
