You’ll learn a variety of different types of carving from an experienced teacher. Discover all the different things you can make with some wood, a knife, and your imagination.

Stephanie Hughes of Decorah, Iowa, is a graduate of Luther College and works as a computer programmer. She took her first woodcarving class at Vesterheim in the summer of 2018 and was immediately hooked.
