Chainsaw Carving

Chainsaw Carving

During this hands-on course you will learn carving techniques, how to choose the right wood, the carving process from planning to detail work, and how to finish and care for your carvings. You will also learn many different types of cuts and techniques to add beauty to your work. In addition, chainsaw and carving safety will be covered throughout the course. The instructors for this course are Rick and Zoë Boni. The Boni family is widely known and respected by the chainsaw carving community, and they are among the best in the business. Rick has won too many carving competitions to mention, has been featured on Fox, CBS and Public Broadcasting, does demonstrations around the world through Masters of the Chainsaw, and has been a judge at many of the best chainsaw carving competitions in the world. In the past 5 years, Zoë has won several competitions and has also been the featured artist on DIY Woodworking. Both have experience teaching chainsaw carving. If you are interested in chainsaw carving to start a side business or as a hobby, this course is ideal for you. Over the four evenings, you will have the opportunity to complete at least one carving, and in the past, many students have been able to complete multiple carvings during this course.

Chainsaws, carving equipment, and wood will be provided. There will be a limited number of chaps available for use; however, we recommend that if you have chaps or chainsaw pants that you bring them with you. Participants are also asked to wear work boots and jeans each day for safety reasons.

This class is part of a series of workshops being taught by regional artists including: Jessie Vaughn, Curt Weinhold, Julie Mader, and Rick and Zoë Boni. Thanks to a PPA Grant provided by the PA Council on the Arts, these workshops are being offered at a reduced rate with the goals of raising awareness of the arts in Potter and McKean Counties, and providing those interested in developing or improving their artistic skills with opportunities to do so. These workshops are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

This class is being held Monday through Thursday, May 19 - 22, 2014, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Potter County Education Council’s Port Allegany office. The cost is $370.00 per person. To register, visit www.pottercountyedcouncil.org or call (814) 545-1333.
