Additional topics include serifs\, spacing\, scale\, typography\, and finishing options such as glue gilding. \nThe final project is a small sign or monogram with a carved border \nThe bulk of each day will be focused on hands-on time\, and we will focus on: \nHow to Sharpen Wood Carving Chisels \nLearn how to sharpen your tools so that you have better control and learn what the term “hot knife through butter” means.  You will learn to sharpen with confidence and efficiency.  Sharp tools that easily bite into the wood and do not skate are an essential ingredient for woodcarving. \nHow to Design Wood Carvings  \nLearn how to design your wood carving projects using references and sources of imagery\, as well as the techniques of drawing in the classical tradition.  This approach to building your design will expand your imagination\, and the steps to creating your projects will start to come more easily to you. \nHow to Carve \nLearn the mechanical steps in the process of carving\, including how to handle your carving tools.  You will learn how to rough out the beginnings of your project and how to do the delicate detailing at the end. You will discover the proper hand technique. \nWood carving is a skill where you use your body as well as your hand to control the gouges. Wood carving is all in the technique\, and learning the correct body mechanic steps will make it flow much more easily.  You will start by working on a few simple boards that will include the techniques of using gouges to do the majority of outlining and defining the lines of the designs and then move on from there. \nWe will also discuss how to make the tools do a variety of cuts\, even when the wood grain is not cooperating! \nTools Needed: Carving Tool List URL:https://events.schoolofwoodcarving.com/index.php/event/classical-sign-letter-carving-florida-school-of-woodwork/ LOCATION:Florida School of Woodwork\, 1609 N.

Alexander will introduce the student to the design process and ways to embellish their furniture as well as give it character. He will start by sharing his sharpening techniques which he calls “sharpening on steroids.”  This is a production style of sharpening that is fast and precise\, which he uses every day that he carves.  Demonstrations will also include how to use carving gouges the old fashioned way – by hand. This class will cover tool selection\, how to work with grain issues in the wood\, planning the cut\, ways to carve safely\, how to clamp the wood without damaging the carving\, and subtle tips and tricks in getting the best use out of your gouges. Students will start with carving a basic relief of floral decoration\, then move on to a more advanced relief carving of a classical acanthus leaf design\, and finally will move on to carve a classic shell design in relief. Alexander will explain how to think through a carving project in order to make the carving process the most efficient. He will also demonstrate how to carve the linen-fold design\, how to carve grapes or beads\, and how to carve lettering. \nKey Points: \n*Sharpening gouges \n*How to properly hold gouges for safety & efficiency \n*How to lower down the background for relief carving \n*How to work with wood grain issues \n*How to carve a basic floral decoration \n*How to carve a more advanced classical acanthus leaf  decoration \n*How to carve a classical scallop shell carving \n*Tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your gouges \n*Demonstrations on linen-fold design\, grapes\, and letter carving URL:https://events.schoolofwoodcarving.com/index.php/event/fundamentals-of-carving-marc-adams-school-of-woodworking/ LOCATION:Marc Adams School of Woodworking5504 E 500 N\, 5504 E 500 N\, Franklin\, IN\, 46131\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://photos.smugmug.com/2019/Carving-with-a-Classical-Flair-with-Alexander-Grabovetskiy/i-vq3Mdfn/0/e73d045b/X5/grabovetskiy_classical_carving2019-09-08%20at%206.50.22%20PM%2010-X5.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Marc%20Adams":MAILTO:info@marcadams.com END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=UTC:20210614T080000 DTEND;TZID=UTC:20210618T170000 DTSTAMP:20201013T091558 CREATED:20200914T024817Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200914T025004Z UID:50-1623657600-1624035600@events.schoolofwoodcarving.com SUMMARY:Fundamentals of Carving – Maine-Coast Traditional Arts Workshops DESCRIPTION:This class is designed to be an introduction to basic carving skills and would be perfect for any furniture maker who wants to take his or her work to the next level.

This method could be used in any type of woodcarving including carving for furniture or carving in 3D (carving in-round) or just in ornamental or architectural types of wood carving. \nKey Points: \n*Classical design development for carving–the ancient art of  design \n*How to think in 3D before you carve–the art of composition \n*How to properly use wood carving tools for safety and efficiency \n*How to work with wood grain issues \n*How to carve a classical design applicable to any type of woodcarving (furniture\, ornamental\, architectural) \n*How to sharpen wood carving tools fast and efficient \n*Tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your carvings URL:https://events.schoolofwoodcarving.com/index.php/event/carving-with-a-classical-flair-marc-adams-school-of-woodworking-2/ LOCATION:Marc Adams School of Woodworking5504 E 500 N\, 5504 E 500 N\, Franklin\, IN\, 46131\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://schoolofwoodcarving.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/alexander_grabovetskiy_carving2020-07-23-at-3.32.59-PM-5-X4.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Marc%20Adams":MAILTO:info@marcadams.com END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=UTC:20210717T080000 DTEND;TZID=UTC:20210718T170000 DTSTAMP:20201013T091558 CREATED:20200914T025625Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200914T025625Z UID:57-1626508800-1626627600@events.schoolofwoodcarving.com SUMMARY:Low Relief Carving for Furniture – Marc Adams School of Woodworking DESCRIPTION:Low relief Carving for furniture\, also known as the Flemish or Liège style was very popular from the 16th to the 19th century in Belgium-French culture.
