Carve a Walking Stick with Susan L. Hendrix
With over 35 years of carving and teaching experience, Susan will take the student through a step-by-step approach to carving a detailed wood spirit on a walking stick. Susan carves in a realistic style, as opposed to the "Caricature" style. She will use drawings and diagrams, showing how each step is carved by demonstrating on her own walking stick. She may also, with your consent, carve on your walking stick to clarify how the tool should be held, how much pressure to use as well as the necessary depth of your cuts.
These skills can be used for carving any face, realistic or caricature, that you may attempt in the future. Also included will be an in-depth study on carving realistic, flowing hair and detailed instruction on carving eyes.
