Expand your carving skills as you carve one or more plaques — perfect for a wall decoration, a sign by the front door, or a gift.

You will be able to choose a design to carve from among those that the instructor will provide. If you've taken this class before, you will be able to carve something new this time. Your materials fee includes the cost of the basswood blanks.


  • This class is open to those who have completed Beginning Carving or a Carving Afternoon session. Students can be as young as 8, although those 12 and younger must have an adult with them.
  • If you choose a complex design, you might need to work on it during Open Studio time or at our Friday-evening Hand Tool Nights. To participate in these, you must first take our free, one-hour Orientation to the Woodshop class. See the Woodworking calendar for dates. 

    (Use of the shop during these times is always free for members. Non-members can also use the shop without an additional charge for the duration of this class.)

  • BARN will supply carving tools to share, but you are encouraged to bring your own if you have them.

Instructor: As a third-generation woodworker, Jeff Iller learned about woodworking tools and knives early on. By high school, he was winning ribbons with his wood carvings at his hometown fair. Around 1996 Jeff found room for a shop and he has carved ever since. He’ll carve most anything, but prefers to innovate with the working tools to carve multiple parts inside one piece of wood and to make physically detailed and accurate carvings of women's faces.

He was taught early on that he could make anything from wood and he is still trying to prove that statement wrong.
