Description

Saturday and Sunday, September 30th and October 1st, plus a 4-hour follow up on Saturday, October 21st

INSTRUCTOR: Daniel Yanchury

Come begin your study of traditional woodcraft this fall at Aprovecho. Instructor Daniel R. Yanchury of Corylus Crafts will guide students through a comprehensive two-day course designed to introduce carvers of all experience levels to a range of vital carving concepts, including:
  • How and why we can use green wood
  • Scandinavian knife techniques
  • Using a hatchet to effectively and safely shape wood
  • Spoon design and function
  • Understanding sharpening
  • Historical perspectives
  • Much, much, more…
This is a hands-on course. Students will leave with a detailed knowledge of many facets of traditional greenwood craft and will have the opportunity to work on a range of small projects with guidance and inspiration from a professional carver.
An included short follow-up class three weeks later will offer students the opportunity to learn about finishing techniques, after their projects have had time to dry and they have had time to practice.
Come join in the fun with woodworking that anyone can do, anywhere.

You have two options for tools:
  • Buy two ready-made knives (MORA 106 and MORA 164) from an internet source.
  • Buy better versions of these knives from me on the day of the class.
