This class involves a great whittling project for beginners! Carved Dala horses (traditional in Sweden) are so charming, and Teaching Artist Darcy will show you how to make your own. You’ll create a figurine or an ornament. You will leave class with a carved and painted Dala horse, all necessary tools, two wood blocks, and additional project instructions to continue whittling through the chilly winter months. No experience necessary. All supplies included. Please enter through the 5th Street door.
