Oaxacan Woodcarving

Oaxacan woodcarving is renowned for its charming, animated, colorfully painted animals. Teachers Ventura Fabian and his son, Norberto, live and work in the woodcarving village of San Martín Tilcajete, Mexico. Learn basic tools and techniques of this Mexican folk art form passed down through generations. Using soft copal wood (provided in class), carve a simple figure (armadillo, hummingbird, fish, turtle or bee). Then paint either your own creation or a small, unpainted piece carved by the instructors. See samples here: www.thedancingchickens.com
