Woodcarving seminars at Lee Valley Tools in Kelowna
Last October I started carving seminars at Lee Valley Tools in Kelowna. What do you carve with a group of students that never carved before, in two and a half days?
After some contemplation I thought a bear's head would probably work out quite well. No complicated shapes like limps or fingers, and it is easily recognisable.
And people in general like bears. Still I was curious to see if they could pull it off in such a short amount of time. To give them a bit more help I carved in advance a progression of bear heads. So they could see the most important steps in the evolution of a carving. At the end of the weekend everybody had a finished carving and nobody stabbed them selfs!
Bellow are some impressions of the seminar:
