In spite of the questionable weather situation, there was a very good turnout for our September Lunch and Learn program! Arts Council member Bob Heath gave an informative presentation (using both power point slides and a hands-on display) to demonstrate his techniques for carving small wooden animals. Bob has been carving in both wood and stone for many years and currently has a number of pieces in both media for sale at the Gallery of Dreams in St. David. Bob says that he is basically self taught, and that he most often works in wood that he picks up “here and there” such as the New Mexico Walnut that gives a two-tone effect– allowing him to carve his White-faced calves without having to resort to paints or stains. He also recommends Basswood as a nice workable material that is readily obtained.
