Join Michelle Wiebe as she guides you through the science and practice of maintaining razor sharp edges on your gouges. Having a properly maintained set of tools will result in greater carving accuracy, longer lasting blades, reduced physical fatigue as well as less chance of injury.  Using a basic set up of easily made or purchased tools she will show you how to hone, sharpen and repair dings on your U gouges, V gouges and Chisels. All items demonstrated can either be inexpensively purchased locally or else up-cycled from easily sourced scraps.

This is an excellent resource or refresher for anyone who is intimidated by the world of sharpening, those who have inherited some long neglected tools as well as artists who are considering upgrading from their current student set of blades. This demonstration is interactive so there will be plenty of time during and afterwards to ask specific questions. Participants are encouraged to have their current set of tools and questions handy during the course of the demonstration for personalized guidance.
