I’m looking for an instructor or class in relief carving near me in Western North Carolina. Any recommendations will be appreciated.

Thank you …

I learned this type of carving when I lived in California. California Carvers Guild. They have them all over the country. Look for a “Carvers Guild” in your area. Lessons are almost free, and lots of folks to support your efforts.

The John C Campbell Folk Schoo has a class with Dylan Goodson in February.

And there are some good carving clubs in NC. Look at the Wood Carvincg Illustrated web site.

I don’t know where you are in NC but Max Proffitt and Gene Webb both have shops in Townsend Tennessee Just across the Western border of NC. They used to be together but have parted ways. Gene is probably the better carver. His work is famos. Max runs Smoky Mountain Woodcarvers supply on what he calls “Nawger Knob” Just outside of Townsend.
