Ken Kohl Seminars

May 20, 21, 22: Jeff Phares will be in town for a 3 day bust seminar. The cost will be $350 which will include the butternut cutout of a cowboy, mountain man, Indian, sea captain, etc. As most of you know, Jeff is an awesome instructor and his classes are always entertaining as well as instructive. This is a mallet and chisel class, so you will need tools. The class will be held at the Burchfield Center in West Seneca, and class times will be 8:30 - 5 each day.

May 24, 24 Jeff will hang around for a two day class where you can finish up your bust, or do a cottonwood bark carving of a human face. This will be held at my house so we will have necessary materials for finishing. Cost of this is $175 plus the cost of the bark if you are carving a wood spirit or such. Game time is 8:30 - 5 each day.

July 21, 22, 23 Leah Goddard and Chris Howard are in town. Leah will be doing animals such as a fox, squirrel, gorilla, etc and Chris will be doing an Indian bust, probably in cedar. They also have a roughout which includes both and animal and Native American, so you would work with both of them for a day and half. This will be held at the Burchfield Center from 8:30 - 5 each day. I will get back to those interested on the total price.
