|David Cowan - Winchester, TN|
|The carvers met Saturday
morning May 5 and discussed plans for two carving seminars.
We will hold the first seminar in late September. It will be
taught by Blue Pau, a member of our Wood Club and the topic
will be carving a half-scale mallard duck that could either
be carved with modest detail as a decoy or with fine detail
like most of Blue's bird carvings.
The second seminar is planned for late January and will be taught by Adina Huckins, an accomplished Arkansas carver. Details about both seminars will be released soon in order to get attendance commitments from club members.
