STENMAN, FRED &

LOW RELIEF CARVING
Students will learn the techniques developed by Elaine and Fred, which combine low relief carving with details that are wood burned. The carvings are painted with acrylics and stained with oil paint.   Tool techniques for full sized gouges and wood burning tools along with elements of design will be taught. Students first execute a small (6”x9”) practice piece which is just wood burned and painted (no carving). This will be followed by the main project piece (approx. 9” wide x15” or 12.5” rounded ) which has the main design elements relief carved and wood burned details.    Students may select from the Stenman’s original designs including an old barn or cabin with a wooded setting and wildlife details. The projects will be carved in basswood with the bark remaining on the edges to create a natural frame. The paints and brushes are provided as part of the class fee.   The basswood boards vary in price and size. The instructors have some wood burners for student use.    We encourage students who are new to the class to do our low red barn or cabin relief as they are a great learning experience.    Other projects will be available for returning students.    Returning students who want to carve a larger and/or more complex project, as well as students who would like to do more than one carving, should sign up for all six days to make it possible to finish.   If you have a special project in mind, please contact us before the
