Sharpening is intimidating for new carvers.  This class gives you an essential foundation for stropping correctly.  Sharpening is a career-long journey; this is your chance to start.  Future classes will cover more advanced sharpening techniques and problem solving.

HANDOUT  - A handout is downloadable by clicking here, and a 30 minute supporting video is viewable by clicking here.  You need to review them prior to the class since they are the basis for what will be practiced.

COVID & FLU - If you are sick, not fully recovered, or living with someone who is please cancel and attend a future monthly session.  

COST - $30 for tuition.  Leather for making your own strops are usually available at the class for $10 and green honing compound for $5.

WORKSHOP LEADER - Roger Crooks or Larry Wade

TOOLS - If you have any, bring your own knife, gouge, V tool, strop and honing compound.  However, practice tools and loaner strops are available so you don't have to bring anything.
