Traditionally carved from pine wood scraps leftover by builders, the Dala Horse is a national symbol of Sweden and marks those dark winter days when carvers sit by the woodstove to whittle. With roots in the 1700s, and maybe earlier, the famous wood carvers of the Swedish Dalarna region still hand carve these pine figures today, and are finished with a traditional kurbits-style, hand-painted decoration. In this 4 hour class, students will learn Scandinavian flat-plane figure carving techniques as we work on our own dala-inspired horses. There may even be time to finish the carving with paint and a simple wood finish. All experience levels are welcome.

MATERIALS FEE $15 to be paid to instructor
