Join us at the Moorhead American Legion for this adorable carving project. Dick Skauge will be leading the class in carving the ornament from basswood. There will be a separate class in December to paint the ornament.

Learn from Dick Skauge how to make this adorable kitten ornament. The blank is basswood approximately 4 3/4” X 2” X 2”. In the example the kitten’s fur has been woodburned, but we will not be doing that in the class. You may chose to do that at home, but it is not required. The December class will be on how to pain the ornament.

Class will run from 9 am to 4 pm. There will be a break at 10:30 for the club meeting. You are welcome to join in. There will be a lunch break following the meeting.  A burger and fries from the American Legion is included in your class registration but you will need to purchase your own beverage. You may chose to eat at a local restaurant if you prefer. Outside food is not permitted.

Experience level: Beginner and up. This is not for someone who hasn’t carved before.
