CLASSES

As you get started with your creating adventures we guarantee you will have a lot of FUN!  We offer classes to give you a huge jump start.  There are many techniques that took me years to learn, that really enhanced my creations.  In our videos I try to teach those techniques but many of you would like to be right there with me to ask questions as you carve/engrave and create.

I have set up some classes that many carvers have asked me to teach in a class, they are listed below.  Look through the classes to get an idea of which would best suit your creating needs.  If you have a special request we can certainly discuss it and set up a special one on one class for you.

In the classes we talk a lot about how to market yourself.  We have gone through many years of learning all the WRONG ways to market ourselves and we are very happy to give you our guidance to help get you started earning an extra income.

If you have a special club you belong to that would like us to come to your area to teach to a group, please give us a call to chat.  We can discuss what options there would be for that.

Happy creating to you all.  If you have any questions on a project you are working on please don't hesitate to give us a call.  We love to talk shop!

2 day wood class using Coyote Stencil Shop  $250.00  - -----Maximum of 4 students

See the picture here of our granddaughter from Alaska.  This picture was scanned into the Coyote Stencil Shop program and within 5 minutes I had a perfect stencil pattern to begin carving a beautiful plaque of Clara. This software is fantastic and very easy to use.  It truly was developed for the ease of the user.  In this class you will learn:

  • Scanning your picture (the one you bring to class and emailed ahead of time to Carl) into Coyote Stencil Shop program.
  • You will learn to easily create a carving ready Stencil of that picture.
  • We will then go to the studio and you will be taught to create a beautiful plaque just as I did of my granddaughter.I

I believe that the Coyote Stencil Shop software is the greatest software for carvers and engravers that has come along in years.

These classes are 8 hours a day.  Lunch is included so we can stay inside here chatting about carving and engraving during our lunch break.Hope to see you soon.
