Note: Because of health issues we have had to put many of our travel plans on hold and Ol' Don is no longer holding workshops though we still hope to do some traveling. Please check back occasionally to see when/if we will be able to resume our travels and where we might be going (see our tentative schedule HERE). We hope to see many of you somewhere on down the road.
Thanks. -Ol' Don
Ol' Don's classes are hands-on
carving and often included lectures with handouts as part of the program,
Your finished carving will give you all the "braggin' rights" since Ol' Don
doesn't believe in carving on a class participant's project. After a brief
introduction to the projects he spends class time walking around and around and

Class participants are
required to bring their own sharp hand tools and a pencil. Time
does not allow for painting in most workshop schedules but all students receive
a handout explaining in detail Ol' Don's painting method.
Participants will work
from a basswood roughout and carve the subject of their choice. Any
of the subjects shown below can be carved in Ol' Don's workshops... the choice
is yours. Click here for MORE DETAILS about
the various roughouts available by mail.
