Many people give up on wood carving because of the difficulty in keeping their tools sharp or the expense of buying new ones as edges wear down. Moleta: Artisanal Sharpening provides and maintains the tools for this class and will offer a short presentation on using bladed tools safely, the importance of a sharp blade, and how to best maintain their edges after sharpening to help you save money and keep carving safely on your own. Each student will be provided with a balsa carving block to take home, as well as a variety of carving tools and a pair of cut-proof gloves to use during the class. Students will have the option to bring any knives, scissors, or garden tools to be sharpened by Moleta during the carving portion of the class (sharpening billed separately according to prices on:https://www.moletausa.com/price-list
