PROGRAMS AND WORKSHOPS
Saturday, January 28th
Saturday, February 11th -- ALL SPACES FILLED
Several times a year, during the winter months, we have one-day workshop in my home in Lancaster. These run from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. and cover the basic how-to's of branch carving, and are normally limited to eight carvers. Folks bring their own knife or knives. I supply the wood. However, anyone is free to bring his or her own supply of twigs and branches and wood scraps too.
Besides showing lots of different things that can "hatch" from branches and other scraps of wood, I usually whittle a rooster and a flower and give both away. I have a fun way of doing that, so everyone gets a chance.
ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE DAYS IN SCHOOLS:
These can involve up to six sessions in a school day, each taking a full class period.
FLOOR BEFORE STARTING
SAME FLOOR LATER!
Occasionally we have winter weather problems, but we'll deal with them at the time!
Guaranteed, no one will have to carve toothpicks, unless they want a fun challenge!
Single Program: $100.00 (Lancaster County area; longer travel may involve a mileage cost)
Artist-in-Residence day (up to 6 class periods): $300.00
From November through March I work mainly out of home, doing programs, demonstrations, and workshops. The first half of January is totally taken up with the Pennsylvania Farm Show, a yearly event that Sheri and I have been participating for more than 20 years. The programs are for schools, scouts, service clubs, senior centers, church groups, home school organizations, conventions, . . . . . . . . . . An average program/demonstration takes between 40 minutes and an hour, and moves at about 120 miles per hour. It's rare that anyone falls asleep!
