August 17 – 19, the Birds of Vermont Museum is hosting the Green Mountain Woodcarvers’ annual three-day seminar.  This year, they will carve a scaled-down Swan (based on the Trumpeter Swan).

The Swan can be carved in several styles, from “Antique” to fully detailed depending, on each carver’s abilities and choice.  If you are interested in taking the class, visit http://greenmountainwoodcarvers.org/class/class.html and follow the instructions there for more details and to register.
