Carving a Comfort Bird


with Bob Lindemann

Calendar Mar 26, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Carving this small bird will give you the confidence to take a block and produce a smooth, flowing, little bird.  Many think this idea came when a woodcarver wanted to give his grandmother a small trinket to hold and stroke while she was going through a tumultuous time in her life.  Giving comfort to the holder this idea has grown in popularity within the health community.  Join us for a 3-hour workshop to learn the intricacies of wood carving, sanding, and finishing your own comfort bird.
