Description

Chip carving is a popular form of gourd carving, and uses hand-held chisels to remove the hard outer shell of the gourd to reveal the lighter, more porous, interior. Using wood stains, inks and dyes to create positive and negative space, beautiful contrasts that bring your design to life can be crafted. As part of this special workshop, you will be given a new carving gouge to use in class and take home. Students will receive a gourd that has been pre-cleaned. All materials included.
