      Price: $95 (lunch included)

                   

       

      Power Carving Class

      This class is perfect for those who want to learn how to get more out of a Dremel or other rotary carver. In this class, you'll learn about using your power rotary tool to carve sand ripples, basic relief carving, and carving for inlay.  Carving safety and types of equipment will be discussed.  

       

      Bring a power rotary tool (Dremel or other brand) and any accessories you have on hand. Bring a gourd suitable for carving and your basic tool box. A mini jig saw may be helpful but is not necessary.   Bring a dust mask or purchase one at class. 

      Suitable carving burs, gourds  and other supplies will be available for purchase.

       

       

      Sept 12  Filigree Carving

      Time 8:30-12:30

      Price $50 (lunch included)


      Filigree Carving 

      In this class you'll learn how to design and carve a section of "filigree" into the gourd surface and will have the option of adding design elements such as butterflies, dragonflies, etc.  You'll try different carving methods and burs and should complete at least one section in class. 

       

      Students should bring a gourd that is reasonably thick for carving.  The gourd may be cut open, cleaned and painted inside ahead of time.

       

      Students should bring a dremel, Foredom or other similar rotary tool, some drill bits, and any burs you have on hand.  Bring a good quality dust mask.

        Riffler files and sanding sticks are helpful but not necessary. 

      (Burs, gourds, hand tools, and dust masks will also be available for purchase if needed.)

      Buffalo Robe Gourd

      Create a Plains Indian style "Buffalo Robe" gourd that is embellished with inlaid or surface applied (your choice) beaded rosettes and faux beading.  You will use a variety of painting techniques to create a distressed leather-like surface.  Typical plains pictographs may be added if you wish. 

      Beaded rosettes and paints will be supplied. You may bring your own brushes or fine point markers if you wish to use those.

      Bring a rotary tool and any burs you have on hand plus a good quality dust mask.  Bring a woodburner if you have one. 

      Bring a small gourd, cannonballs work well for this project.

      Suitable carving burs gourds and other supplies will be available for purchase.
