About the event

Learn how to sharpen and maintain your carving tools! This class will focus on the core concepts in sharpening – how to put an edge on your tools using accessible and inexpensive sharpening system of sandpaper, leather strops, and elbow grease. Students are encouraged to reach out to instructor before the class if there are any other edge tools they would like to learn how to sharpen!

Students leave class with: bag with wood block, one of each grit sandpaper; handouts; their sharpened tools

Lee is a spoon carver and green woodworker with a background in education. They have been carving avidly for three years. Lee teaches to a broad spectrum of learners – whatever your learning style and whoever you are, this is the place for you! Lee’s favorite tool is the froe (used for splitting wood), and their favorite place to be is in the woods with their dog, Artie.

Limited to 8 participants.

Cost: $80
