Bowl carving with Dave Fisher

June 7th & 8th
        OR June 10th &11th, 2019            $375

You'll begin with a log and Dave will lead you in visualizing, laying out, hollowing, hewing, and slicing your way to a graceful and functional bowl. 


As the chips fly, Dave will focus on techniques and skills that are transferable to a variety of bowl designs. 


All experience levels are welcome.

Tools & materials

Students should bring a hollowing adze*, carving hatchet, bent gouge, and sloyd knife*.  Also, a large pencil compass or dividers similar to this 12" model. A serviceable compass can even be made with some strips of wood and a bolt for a pivot point.  Other tools that may come in handy are a drawknife or pushknife, spokeshave, and a pencil* for writing on green wood.  Other gouges, hooks, etc. are welcome too -- we'll figure it out!
