INTEREST LIST - Carving a Monogram with Chuck Rinehart- not a class (yet)

Register your interest in taking the six week class to introduce you to the wonderful world of carving monograms.

      Instructor- Chuck Rinehart

Chuck Rinehart has not taught this class for us yet but has before at his former club in Rochester, NY.  

This is a three week introduction class based on classical patterns useful for decorating furniture and making stand-alone designs.  In three weeks you will learn enough to accomplish quite a bit, but you will also learn this is a big field with lots of options and time required.   Hopefully this class will whet your appetite, and it will also teach you some techniques for other types of carving.

You are required to have long handled tools useful for lettering, along with having a carving mallet and access to a variety of gouges.  The Guild owns some tools that might be useful for you in case you don't have any.

Prior carving experience is required and taking Chuck's Intro class first is recommended.

The project for this class will create a pattern of your design, using elements from classical books on stylized lettering from antiquity.  The design can be as simple or complex as you want, and what you choose almost doesn't matter, because you will be learning the techniques needed to create a wide variety of patterns.

COST of the class is $180, including materials, but not the tools. It's free to sign up on the interest list.
