Each carver will be carving off of an Instructor supplied carving bench and vice. I will help each carver set up their rough out on the carving vice for safe carving. I mainly used #3,#5,#7,#9, and #11 sweeps in carving tools. A small set of micro tools ranging from 2-5 mm gouges are helpfull. A couple of sharp bench and detail carving knives. A carving mallet is helpful but not extremely necessary. The Indian carving class is for Saturday and Sunday. The Mountain Man carving class is for Monday and Tuesday.

WOLTERSTORFF, LARRY

Canes  Larry will be teaching canes with stylized dog, dragon, eagle head, fritz, T handle, derby handle or stylized bird.  Cane shafts can be plain, pierced, carved or wood burned.  I will have some shafts with designs available.  Most of my handles are Maple, Walnut, or some other figured hard wood.  Shafts are also exotic woods.  If you want to do a Commemorative cane; either military,  police or fire department; please call me well before the class at 928-445-8704.  You will need to print out on computer paper the military shoulder patch in color 1 to 1 ¼ inch wide.  All information that you want on the cane should be printed out in capitol letters Arial style and 28 font.  Double space between words.  You will need service dates, rank and medals.  If you can print out pictures of the military rank it will look impressive on the cane shaft.  Depending upon what you want to do, plan on 2 or 3 days to get a good start on your cane.  Tools:  Sharp knife, small gouges, safety glove, and wood burner with fine tip.  See examples at the American National Cane Club website.  B/I/A  Max 10  Min 3  Cost $30 plus $20-$30 for the blank.

Cut-Out Work On Sweat Shirt  This class does cut out work down the front of a sweat shirt.  I have three designs for you to choose from.  Supplies you will need:  sweatshirt, one yard of material that goes well with the sweatshirt, thread to match the sweatshirt, sewing machine, and pointed nose scissors.  I use men’s sweatshirts as they are more roomy.  I have two sewing machines available to the first two people that ask for one.  Also, I will have some sweatshirt kits made up of various sizes for anyone needing one.  We had this class last year and they seemed to enjoy it and asked to have the class again this next year.  Any questions contact Carol Edgington, 5 Timberlane Road, Eldon, MO, email at pcecie@sbcglobal.net or call at home at 573-392-6379 or my cell at 573-280-8314.  Max 8  Min 2  Cost $25 plus the kit, if you need one.
