Free Beginner Carving Classes

Free beginner carving classes are offered throughout the year by the Cincinnati Carvers Guild.  The wood and instructions are free and participants may use their own sharp knives or buy one from the instructor. Two three-hour classes are generally needed to complete the initial project.  Classes will be held on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.  However, class time can be arranged to fit your available time on weekdays or weekends.  Our objective is to provide you with the help you need to become an independent carver. At the first class you will hear about tools, knife sharpening, safety, and common problems.  Basic knife cuts will be demonstrated and you will start on a carving and take it home to continue carving on your own until the second class.  Call Mike Boback, 521-0059, for more information and have your first project completed before this time next month.
