Michelle Wronski, of Barre, brought many of her finished carved birds to the April potluck supper on Sunday. But there were also birds in various states of completion so we could really see how a block of wood is transformed into a finished piece of art. She demonstrated how to carve with a knife, carefully using strokes away from your hands and body. Michelle also uses a machine carver, which works faster. That also means that you have to be careful to not take off too much wood.
Folks enjoyed meeting new friends and sharing a great supper. People of all ages came together at our offices for a wonderful evening.
Join us on Sunday, May 5th for the next monthly potluck.
