Geoff Davis carves little birds. Last year he pledged 50 to help the Folk School to raise money for construction and technology costs. Since this time he’s carved and painted nearly 100 little birds.
In his unique style influenced by folk carvers such as Charles Hart and Wilhelm Schimmel, Geoff carves and paints the birds that are a part of his life using simple and inexpensive tools and materials.
Join Geoff for an afternoon discussing an exploring the many steps to producing a distressed finish using a combination of modern and traditional finishes. Geoff’s finishes have a rich depth and luster that invites observers to handle and rub his work.
Students may bring their own carved and unfinished birds to be decorated. Students who do not have a carved bird may purchase flatties (unpainted 2-dimensional cutouts) for $5 each.
Combine this class with a carving class the same morning. You will save money and have a bird ready to paint.
This class often fills quickly. Register soon.
