SAME FLOOR LATER!

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.

Guaranteed, no one will have to carve toothpicks, unless they want a fun challenge!

FLOOR BEFORE STARTING

Occasionally we have winter weather problems, but we'll deal with them at the time!

2018 WORKSHOPS:

​​WORKSHOPS

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.

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!
