Gallery: The School of Classical Woodcarving

Ian Agrell led another woodcarving class this past week at his workshop in San Rafael, California. A group of four dedicated students worked on a variety of projects, including lettering, acanthus motifs, egg-and-dart moulding, and sculpture in the round.

Ian has been running The School of Classical Woodcarving for more than 25 years. He currently offers weekend (two days, $395) and weekday classes (five days, $895) in the fall and spring, with the next session set for November 14-20, 2015. Space is extremely limited, but there are slots available. We also have a wait list, and we may offer additional sessions if there’s interest.
