Chip Carving

$150

with Daniel Clay

Calendar Jul 16, 2018 at 10 am

In this one-day class students will recieve comprehensive instruction in 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 and guided practice students will leave class with knowledge, experience and confidence to pursue chip carving on their own. One of the most attractive aspects of chip carving (especially for beginning woodcarvers) is that it can be accomplished at a high level wth minimal tools and materials; all you need to become a great chip caver is a sharp knife, soem suitable wood and a little practice.

Daniel Clay is a woodworker, deisgner and artist based in Knoxville, TN. He is an alumni of The Carpenter's Boatshop apprenticeship program ('06) where he studied wooden boatbuilding, Shaker oval boxes, Appalachian ladder-back chairs and spoon and bowl carving.
