Chip Carving with Bazz, first Tuesday in February

Our next meeting happens this Tuesday, February 6, at the usual time and place: 7 PM, Bethany Baptist Church.
The focus for the evening will be Chip Carving.  Chip carving can be done at the kitchen table with just a few hand tools and creates beautiful results.  There are three basic cuts: curved, triangular, and straight, that can be combined into an endless variety of designs.  Sylvain --Bazz-- Bazinet, a member of our club, will introduce you to chip carving techniques, tools, and everything you need to get started.
Bazz has been chip carving since 1997.  During the early years, Bazz took courses in chip carving and then competed in carving competitions in both Canada and the U.S.  He has enjoyed teaching chip carving at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels at the Visual Art Center in Orleans and at Lee Valley Tools for several years.
Bazz will also be contributing to the 50/50 draw instructional videos on Chip Carving and Relief Carving that his previous company created in 2001.  Come to enjoy Bazz's presentation.
Don't forgot to bring your indoor shoes, and if you wish, something for show and tell (or screw up and tell!).
See you next week,
Jeff.
OWA Secretary
