Upcoming Class at the Razertip Classroom

Carve a Natural-finish Loon with Garry Rector
Wednesday Evenings February 21 through April 25 2018, 6:30pm- -9:30pm

At The Razertip Classroom, 301-9th Street North in Martensville

Garry Rector will instruct you in the use of using rotary tools to create a Common Loon, approximately 12 inches long. The piece will be done creating a smooth finish with some detail, glass eyes, then coated with a clear finish to bring out the natural grain of the wood. Once completed you will have created a piece of art you will be proud to display This class is ideal for first-time or less experienced carvers (although more experienced carvers will also enjoy the class). 

The Razertip classroom is a fully-equipped facility where each workstation has all the top-quality tools and equipment you'll need to complete your project. Even if you have tools of your own, you won't need to bring them (unless you really want to). 

A fee of $250.00 includes everything - a bandsawn blank, pattern and glass eyes, clear finish and any other tools and supplies as needed (also includes all applicable taxes). All you need to bring is a desire to carve your bird!
