Project office hours with woodcarving instructor Carleen Weirauch the second Thursday of each month from 6:00PM-8:30PM. This is an opportunity to bring in a woodcarving project you are working on from a previous class or a project of your own. Carleen will be available to offer advice and assistance as needed. This is NOT A CLASS but a casual open carving session.
Space is limited so please RSVP so we can set up a carving station for you.
* A limited number carving tools will be provided by 180 Studios for this open carving session but if you have some of your own feel free to bring them with you.
Carleen Weirauch apprenticed as a wood carver at Reed Bros. Furniture in Sebastopol in the `90s where she stayed on to carve furniture backs, headboards, chair rails etc. under the direction of Master carvers Duncan Reed, Jason Todd and Paul Hampton; all students of Alfred Durney. Alfred Durney was an apprentice of Charles Marshall Sayres, who led the Carmel, California School Of Woodcarving in the `20s that combined Spanish designs found in local monasteries with other European designs.
Carleen’s current work is all deeply informed by her traditional wood carving background. She continues to carve custom wood signs and fabricates sculptural pieces out of a broad range of mediums for props, commercial displays and exhibits.
Carleen is also a volunteer here at 180 Studios. You can find her here on Fridays (new shift change!) from 6-10 PM if you have any questions regarding this upcoming event. You can also email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
