Safe use of hand tools will be emphasized in this class as well. 



There are no prerequisites other than to come with enthusiasm and the ability to grasp and manipulate knives and gouges.


A $5 material kit containing a cut out of the bird, eyes, and a diagram will be provided. Students may reimburse the instructor at the start of class.
