ROCKPORT, Maine — Are you an intermediate carver who has some experience carving ducks with hand tools? Five Town CSD Adult and Community Education has a class in carving the lesser scaup, 6-8 p.m. beginning Nov. 14 and running for six weeks.
The class will cover pattern options, how to get razor-sharp edges on tools, texturing and painting techniques, and feather burning. The basic basswood blank is supplied but may be adjusted to reflect other poses if the student wants, before carving starts. The basic pattern shows an animated bird rolled onto its side with tail fanned.
To register for the class, contact Five Town CSD Adult Ed at 236-7800, option 5, or http://www.fivetowns.maineadulted.org.
