Learn the fundamentals of chip carving, a decorative technique in which faceted “chips” are removed from a wooden surface to produce geometric patterns, stylized images, lettering and ornamentation.
Through demonstrations, guided practice, skill-building exercises, and the completion of a decorative wall hanging, students will leave class with all the knowledge, experience and confidence to pursue chip carving on their own.
Be amazed by the gorgeous work you’ll be able to accomplish with a few sharp tools, some suitable wood and a little practice!
Daniel will show you how to:
dress and sharpen a new chip carving knife
select and prepare wood for chip carving
understand design considerations specific to the craft through examination of historical and modern examples of chip carving from around the world
develop proper technique, safe carving habits, and familiarity with chip carving’s basic design vocabulary through the completion of a “practice board”
navigate grain direction to achieve clean results
develop increasing facility and confidence through free-form carving exercises
transfer patterns to wood
finish completed carvings
Students will go home with a selection of patterns for carving on their own. No prior woodworking or carving experience is necessary to take the class, but all are welcome! This class is best suited to those with little or no chip carving experience.
Materials fee will include wood and sharpening equipment. Students must bring or purchase a chip carving knife and eye protection. The class will also use a 12" combination square and 220 grit sandpaper (optional to bring your own).
Cancellations made with less than 36 hours advance notice and no-shows to the class will not qualify for any refunds.
Class participants must bring or purchase safety glasses or goggles and sign a safety waiver.
Parking is available in front of our shop and under the expressway. The subway (R train to 25th street in Brooklyn) is only a few blocks away.
