In this two-day workshop, learn the fundamentals of wood carving and applying gold leaf by carving and gilding your very own star. This class takes place in the Museum’s historic Shipcarver’s shop and will cover safety, tool sharpening, and use of simple hand tools such as chisels, gouges, as well as techniques for applying gold leaf. When you are finished, you will have learned the basics needed to continue on your own, and you will have a decorative object to take with you home. All supplies are included.
