If you’re looking for a new creative outlet, the Nordic Heritage Museum is offering Nordic woodcarving classes on Saturdays from 9am to 3:30pm, September 16 through November 11.
“In this class, participants will learn Baroque Acanthus, Rococo, and Viking/Dragon woodcarving styles. You can concentrate on the fundamental leaf formations of the Acanthus style, working up to combinations of the Acanthus curl, or explore the Viking/Dragon style,” according to the organizers from the museum.
No tools or experience is necessary; they’ll be teaching tool sharpening and basic carving techniques for beginners, and more advanced students will have an opportunity to develop their own projects. The cost for museum members is $45 for 1 class; $85 for 2; $125 for 3; $160 for 4; $200 for 5. For general admission, add $2 per day. Tickets can be bought per month; register for September classes here.
