 Bird Carving - Virginia Rail
We will be carving and painting a life size Virginia Rail. This medium-sized rail is a marsh bird, and is more frequently heard than seen as it forages for insects. It can be found throughout much of North America. We will be making what is referred to as a stick bird and mounted on a dowel instead of legs and feet. This class is geared toward the beginner and intermediate carvers.
Materials fee: $20 includes blank, glass eyes, and paint to complete the project, payable to the instructor at first class.
Students should supply their own carving knives and brushes.
Some knives and other supplies will be available for purchase from the instructor.
