Carving a Wood Spirt Class

Feb 18 and 25, 7:00 pm

Terry Burnside has been carving for 20 years and has done a hundred+ wood spirits.

Zoom Meeting
(Link will be sent out when you register, and two days before the event)


This class has two sessions a week apart, preceded by an optional demo scheduled for Feb 4th (register separately).  

This class is designed for those not familiar with carving a wood spirit, beginners and beyond, delivered in two 90-minute live Zoom sessions.  Terry developed his techniques over 20 years, learning from two different carving professionals.  The course is hands on, and the material will be wooden dowels provided by the instructor.  Students need a carving glove, strop and four carving tools - a carving knife, V tool and two medium sweep gouges (like #7 in 1/4 and 1/8 widths), palm or long handled. If you need tools, glove or strop, we might be able to find loaners.  The class outline is:

  1. Introduction to carving and history of wood spirit carving
  2. Proportions of facial features for the size of the material
  3. Sharpening demonstration
  4. A demonstration of each step followed by carving time and QA – NOTE – This will occupy the most time
  5. Recap and list of wood spirit carving guides and materials
  6. Explore interest in future projects, such as the Green Man

On-Line Demo
