Marine Carving Class with Wayne Robbins
June 17 Jul 8
6 p.m. 8 p.m. Boatshop Workshops
Monday evenings June 17 through July 8 6pm- 8pm
Let's carve an heirloom whale. Sailors often suffered hours and days of boredom, to occupy their time some resorted to creating art/craft items from available materials like ivory, whale bone and wood. In this four session whale carving class we will sculpt a nine inch sperm whale from a blank of basswood, finish it with ebony stain and a sealer. Each artist will endear it with their name and date for future generations to enjoy too. Experience is not necessary but patience is!
Instructor Wayne Robbins is a well known local marine mammal sculptor, marine biologist, and naturalist.
