Workshop Description: This workshop is intended to be Day 1 of a two-day workshop with Slickbald and Robert Beard. In this workshop, you’ll cut and carve a floral pattern into a picture frame with Slickbald, creating lively contours through the use of bevelers, backgrounders, lifters, etc., and understanding how to carve with perspective for a “natural” look. You’ll then cut out the frame to prepare it for Day 2. (Note: Day 1 may be taken as a stand-alone workshop; to sign up for both days, please select Slickbald & Beard’s Framed Picture – Combo and save $30!)

Materials to bring: Maul/mallet, swivel knife and blades, filligree chisels and/or #11 X-Acto knife, French edger, figure bevellers, common beveller, small pear shaders, veiner, leaf liner, small under beveller, horizontal thumbprint, strop, cutting board, and a stamping stone.
