Learn how to carve a whimsical bird in a folk art style in this one day workshop led by popular folk art wood carver Pat Russo.
Pat Russo, a native of Pennsylvania now living in Bucks County, has been developing her folk art wood carvings for over twenty years. Self-taught, she began working with wood when she rescued a jigsaw earmarked for the trash. Over the years, some of her most requested favorites have been her bird trees, roosters, chickens, flying pigs and snowmen. Workshop participants will carve a bird and learn how to display it on a stand. Ms. Russo will show examples of her work and explain the full process, including how to paint carvings, so that you can continue to work at home.
