Hooks and Hangers

Put your carving knife to work carving hooks and hangers in this one-day class! Alongside woodworking instructor Sam Gathje, students will practice carving in the traditional green wood style, starting with a small branched length of wood. Using the natural shape of the branch, students will shape it into a useful hook. From there, students will tackle simple pegs and attach them to a board for any hanging storage needs. Decoration and finishing, such as additional carving, paint, or other finishes will be discussed and demonstrated if time allows.

A $30 materials fee paid to the instructor covers all tools and materials. This class is appropriate for carvers with minor prior green woodworking experience, such as ASI’s Green Woodcarving 101 workshop. Students need good hand strength and flexibility; suitable for ages 16+.
