ONLINE: Not Your Mama’s Dala Horse: Carving Unicorns

March 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

A carved Dala horse-style unicorn


Interested in carving but don’t want to start on a traditional project? Carve a folk-inspired unicorn with Mike Loeffler! Participants will go through safe knife holds and the steps to carve safely and efficiently. Carving is just as safe as cooking at home. Students only need good hand strength and some flexibility. Please wear close-toed shoes.

This class includes a kit shipped to your home with a unicorn carving blank, a Mora 120 sloyd knife, carving gloves, acrylic paint, brushes, and a special treat from Vesterheim (a $60 value). Kits will have everything you need to continue carving, long after class.  If you are left-handed, please email jtorkelson@vesterheim.org to make sure we get you the right tools!

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the contiguous United States, additional shipping charges may apply. Please contact jtorkelson@vesterheim.org when you register for more information.

Dates: Wednesdays, March 3, 10, 17, 2021 (6:00 PM – 7:30 PM CT)

Supplies: A computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

Special Instructions: You will receive a link to the Zoom sessions by email sometime during the week prior to the first group meeting.
