My favorite thing to teach is the carving of faces.  Not simply because I enjoy the endless character and expressions one can achieve, but because students are fascinated by the relative ease of my step by step process.


Beginners class:

I first introduce the basic safety and use of wood carving tools. Then I point out the importance of the wood grain,  assist them in general pattern making and feature placement.  Next comes the step-by-step process for carving each feature.  In a three hour class students have accomplished a fully realized face unique to each carver.


Intermediate to Advanced class:

After a student has practiced and feels comfortable with the process taught in the beginners class it is time to move on to teaching the use of a few more tools and how to accomplish an endless variety of expressions and features.
