Workshop Description: Together with Slickbald, you will make a 3-D, filigreed floral carving with inlaid stones, suitable for framing. While we will focus on 3-D floral tooling techniques, we will also learn to filigree and set stones. Not enough? How about learning how to lay out a perfect meander border? More? Resist and antique will also be covered. You cannot get more from a one day workshop!

Materials to bring: Basic carving tools: swivel knife, strop, common beveller, figure bevellers, thin veiner, small smooth pear shaders, modeling spoon, horizontal thumbprint, small lifter, 12mm meander stamp, dividers, ruler, filigree chisels, French edger, maul/mallet, water sprayer/mister, and a stamping stone. (He will have a limited number of tools to share).
