Woodcarving with Jack Taylor: Carve a Comfort Bird

Friday, November 7, 2014 -
10:00am to 3:30pm
Wachtmeister Field Station

Learn the basic skills of wood-carving with Jack Taylor. Jack will teach the group how to make and individualize the beautiful comfort bird, which is shaped specifically to be held in the hand for stress-relief. (Just in time for the lead-up to exams!) This workshop is appropriate for beginners as well as those who have taken a previous woodcarving workshop with Jack. All supplies will be provided, and lunch will be included.

Allergy Note: The dust from butternut wood, which will be used for this workshop, has been known in rare cases to trigger tree nut allergies.
