Hands-on hand carving introduction. NWSSA will provide tools and the carving limestone will be provided by Marenakos. NWSSA members will be on hand to help the new carvers with tool choice, design, and technique. Attendees may keep the piece that they started and continue working on at home.
Power tools will be on display and may be demonstrated by professionals, but not used by the attendees. Tools will be available for sale in the Marenakos Store.
