Great Class Participation

It was a great class! Everett Koontz hosted a Rich Wetherbee class July 7-9. We had numerous rough outs to choose from with most people completing 2 projects! Rich is such a good instructor and everyone came away feeling very successful! Rich was great about really teaching not just carving on your project! A few things I learned were: carving up on the base to the shoes to give more room for the shoes and making them stand out instead of digging around the shoes to form them, carving long strokes with the knife to make a cleaner carving instead of little chips especially in the arms and legs, a great diamond shape eye technique that is easier to make matching eyes than most others. It was a great class! Thank you Everett for arranging the class and hosting it with yummy lunches!!! It was so great to be able to get together and carve again!!!
