Workshop Overview

Students will learn or increase carving skills, gouge and chisel techniques. They will become familiar with at least two different woods. Emphasis is on learning about woods and experimenting with tools to achieved desired results. Students will give thought to design elements and how they relate to the wood and the tool. There will also be some use of power tools along with instructions for safe operation. Prior knowledge of tool

usage is not necessary.

About the Instructor(s)

Having grown up around the sculptures of her father, Roy Setziol, it is not surprising that Monica Setziol-Phillips decided to investigate the medium. It drew her in and she has now been carving for over 35 years. The character and feel of the wood continue to excite her. Developing the relationship between tool, wood and imagination informs the work. She looks forward to sharing what she has learned with her students and feels she learns from them as well. Her own work is mostly abstract, as she understands that approach best and finds it most meaningful.
