December 3, 2022 @ 9:30 am3:30 pm
Birds of Vermont Museum
$45
Three painted woodcarvings: a male Northern Cardinal, a female Northern Cardinal, and an evergreen tree. They sit on a wooden surface against a pale background, with the male in front and the tree in back, overlapping. The birds are ornaments: they have small brass loops on their backs through which a cord could be threaded. The tree is a somewhat layered cone in dark green with some white and glitter on some of the ridges of its branches.

Complete a painted woodcarving in this one-day class! Wood blank and paint provided.
David Tuttle of the Green Mountain Woodcarvers leads the workshop.
