    Get a good foundation in carving techniques, including push, stop and draw cuts. In this three-session class, you will learn the basics of safe handling and use of carving knives the first night, then go on to learn how to deal with changes in wood grain, hollowing techniques, and other concepts as you make a spoon and carve a figure during the second and third sessions.

    This class is open to both beginning carvers and those who already have some carving experience. Each time BARN schedules this class, the carving projects are new.

    The instructor will use a close-up camera and projector while demonstrating techniques so you will be able to see details without needing to be closer than social distancing rules require. You will also be able to use the camera to show the instructor closeups of your work so he can give detailed advice.

    Details:

    • Open to ages 12 and older. No prior experience is needed.
    • Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.
    • BARN will supply carving tools to share, but students are also encouraged to bring their own.
    • Closed-toe shoes and a face mask are required. More safety details can be found here.

    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. Carvings on the entry sign to the BARN Woodworking Studio shows the quality of his work.

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

    Join us for a basketry workshop with Kathey Ervin, one of our favorite instructors, and learn how to create a basket using yellow cedar, reed canary grass, and false embroidery.

    Yellow cedar is often called the 24 caret gold of the northwest. Reed canary grass, although it grows everywhere (often seen in the ditches along roadways), is a beautiful material to work with – it processes and dyes easily.  

    False embroidery technique is used for pattern work and it is worked in as the basket is twined, not added afterwards. False embroidery is unique in that it does not show on the inside of the basket.  

    The first morning will be creating a Tlingit-style twined base, learning folded spoke additions, making the base 2.5 inches across.  Harvesting and preparation techniques will be discussed and a full set of instructions will be included.

    Details:

    • Please note that for this class, cancellation requests received 14 days or less before the workshop start date will not be eligible for a refund or credit.
    • A Materials Fee of $85 is included in the total class price. 

    • Instructor will provide all materials and tools required. If student has a favorite pocket knife – please bring.  

    • Students should wear comfortable work clothes. 
    • Bring a bag lunch. We have a refrigerator and a microwave available.
    • Skill Level: Intermediate -- Students need to have twining experience with basketry weaving.
    • Ages 14+ Welcome.

    Instructor Bio:  Kathey Ervin lives in Sequim, Washington.  After a career as a maker in clay creating mostly dinnerware, twenty years ago Kathey pivoted and began a new career in basketry.  She has gone through various phases of learning, embracing everything from fairly high volume production work, to pursuing her own award winning artistic aesthetic.  Kathey says:  “Every professor and teacher I have ever worked with has talked about learning and ‘passing it on’.  I am passionate about this point, and love the experience of seeing a student begin to pick up a technique, develop it, and then ‘pass it on.”
