Traditional Chip Carving
Class Instructor: Bart Dunning
Skill Level: Beginner
Chip carving is a very old craft practiced in many cultures. This is an art-form that almost anyone can enjoy as a fulfilling skill. The finished pieces often look very complicated and beautiful.
The patterns we typically see are based on Northern European traditions. Chip carving just requires patience and a strong, steady hand. It consists of a set of triangular or curved cuts laid out in regular, geometric patterns, but can also be more free form, as in lettering or images.
