Wood Carving Workshop with Eric Petitclerc
A great beginners workshop: Come and learn the basics of wood carving! We will work with green wood (wood that is fresh, soft and easy to carve). In our day together, you’ll have time to complete a project, so you’ll go home with a spoon that is carved and ready to dry.
