Carving doesn’t require a large investment to get started. In fact we recommend starting with a minimal set until you determine which type of carving interests you.
Beginning carvers are encouraged to take the Beginning to Carve Course at your local Woodcrafters Store.
Then join us at our weekly carving sessions at Woodcraft in Springfield on Thursdays
