Alex Yerks


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Carve a heart!

Roses only last a couple days, but you can make them something that lasts ages. Valentines Day is coming up and Alex has been hard at work carving for everyone out there who needs a little extra heart. He's carved thousands of hearts over the years with his axe and knife, and it never gets old. Whether you want one for yourself, or to gift one to someone you love, Alex will teach you how to carve simple wooden hearts.

Regardless of what you plan to do with all the hearts you make, this is a great foundational class for beginners and experienced woodworkers.

This innovative technique to carve many hearts from one stick will be included in the instruction. Most carvers will finish a handful of hearts before the class is over.



A complete kit of materials, valued at $50, includes blanks, a knife, safety gloves, a strop and stropping compound, and a sweet treat from Vesterheim. It is included in the cost of registration and will be mailed to you!
