2023-02-22 – Scandinavian Figure Carving (Online)



Wednesdays, February 22 and March 1 and 8 (6:00-7:30 pm CT)


Charles Banks


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Interested in carving a classic Scandinavian flat plane inspired character? Join artist/carver Charles Banks as he will take you step by step through the creation and carving of a classic old man character. Our focus will be on the introduction and use of flat plane cuts and creative painting techniques to bring your character to life. Special emphasis will be placed on the Nordic inspired sweater pattern we will be applying to our character!


This class includes a kit shipped to your home with two character blanks, one practice stick, an OCC 1 7/8 inch straight knife, carving gloves, acrylic paint, brushes, and a special treat from Vesterheim ($70 value). Kits will have everything you need to continue carving, long after class. Tools are required for this class and included in the class fee.
