Topic tags/keywords: carving classes carving ball and claw acanthus shell carving goose neck

I was not sure where to post this, so hope this is an OK place:

I’m hosting classes taught by some of the world’s finest carvers and teachers at my shop in the Camden, Maine Historic District, right off the harbor.
Beginner to advanced levels.
Traditional & Classical carving, sign carving, letter carving; 18th century shells, acanthus, ball & claw, gold leafing techniques, etc.
Starts May 2020

See for all the info. Click here for the website.

Discount lodging is available to make this more affordable.
A wonderful opportunity to learn more in a week than many years on your own, in a wonderful location.

That would be a welcome addition to the carving world. Fewer and fewer people carve these days. Hopefully that trend will reverse. Good luck with your enterprise.

This is being hosted right about the time the company i work for is trying to close a merger. We are the ones being bought out. If the job holds out thru the merger I’m seriously considering making this my summer vacation destination. My great uncle was a carver but sadly his health deteriorated before he was able to pass on his knowledge.

I wish there was opportunity like this on the west coast. I had to learn on my own .
One of the hardest parts for me is shaping and sharpening carving tools.

Good Luck with the school Mr Brown

Thanks for the comments and apologies for this very delayed reply!

The class website has been updated and there’s a lot to see there:
This will be a wonderful opportunity to learn from the masters in a very nice vacation spot.

Thanks for the encouragement.
