Master woodcarver Yo Takimoto will guide you in the traditional process of Japenese woodcarving, or kikezuri.  In this meditative process, you will utilize the natural characteristics of the wood to carve and sand a unique sculptural form.  Yo will provide a variety of woods to choose from and all tools.  Beginners are welcome.
