Chip Carved Ornaments

Dennis Wilson

Using traditional chip carving with small knives, students will carve attractive, intricate patterns into 4" basswood disks that can be used as either Christmas tree ornaments or coasters. All students will receive and carve a basswood board with practice designs and then use the same designs to carve into the ornaments or coasters. Decorate your own tree or give as a holiday gift! This class is as much for the beginner as it is for the advanced chip carver.
