Old Orchard Beach/Saco Adult and Community Education

Beginning Wood Carving

with Iona Desmond


Do you find the touch, grain patterns, and warm tones of wood pleasing? Study the shape of your piece to determine the form hidden within, concentrating on the large planes and angles to bring it to life. Use simple hand tools to transform scraps of wood into birds, fish, animals or abstract forms. Enhance the quality of the grain and the texture with an easily applied finish. Leave class with your work of art and a new appreciation for the beauty and possibilities of wood. Tools and materials are provided, but feel free to bring your own carving tools. No class May 28th.

Iona Desmond is an award-winning artist and teacher with over 38 years of experience. Her pastels and sculptures are in many private collections in the US and Canada.
