Description: Carvers of all skill levels, in four sequential sessions, learn the techniques of relief carving. A starting size board for bas relief is generally 10” L x 5” H x ¾ “ D. Basswood is a good carving wood. These sizes are approximate. Woodcraft stocks these boards, and I can help you select a board on night one of our class.

Three-Dimensional Carving with Charlie Milliser

Carvers should come with approximately a block of wood that is 12” H x 8” W x 4” D (basswood is easiest to work with). Woodcraft sells tools and blocks of wood. If you own carving tools, they should be of similar sizes and shapes as those listed.

Description: If you have ever wanted to carve three-dimensionally but didn’t know how to start or make your piece more life-like, this is the class for you. Whether you want to understand how to carve a realistic, 3D form of a face, an animal, or some other sculpture, this class is designed for that purpose. The class will offer direct instruction for novice carvers and guidance for those who are more advanced. The goal of the class is to make three-dimensional carving accessible and enjoyable for all carvers.
