March 2013 newsletter is now posted!



Hi folks,

I hope y'all are as excited about this year's school as I am.  The Twenty-Eighth Annual Southeastern Woodcarving School (SWS) will be held July 12th - 14th, 2013 at the Doster Community Center, 424 S. Northington St., Prattville, AL. 

The big news this year is that we are going to hold a judged carving contest!  This is the first time that such a contest has ever been held in conjunction with the school.  You can read all the details on page 7 when you download the brouchure.  There will still be display tables for those that do not wish to participate in the competition; however, I hope you will choose to enter the competition as it is an excellent way to help one's growth as a carver and it's fun too!  Please bring plenty of your carvings with you as we will be doing our best on the publicity side to bring in visitors to see all of the carvings on display. Let's make this a year to remember!

See you in July,

“Soft Shading” Wood burning - Carolyn Marek

Carolyn had outlined her wood burnings for quite a while and had a sense that shading was needed.  However, the shading blank was a skew shape and unacceptable.  Being frustrated, she painted and learned shading and other artistic techniques.  Then in 2003 and 2004, she took a class in "soft shading" wood burning technique which opened a new window.  Since then, she has been developing "her style".  She and her husband, Bob, teach 11 classes per week in the Clearwater, Fl. area and have taught at the Woodcarving Roundup in Florida for 4 years.  Many have called this style 'painting with fire' and indeed that can be accomplished with all the browns; from the lightest tan to the darkest brown, almost to black.  This class will involve "soft shading" wood burning on birch/poplar plywood, pine, basswood, leather and paper.  Several projects will be completed as examples; patterns for other projects will be available.  Shading and texture with different heats will be taught.  She is planning on having a couple of projects identifiable to Alabama, done for the class.  If you have something special to woodburn, bring your project and wood choice.  Carolyn can be contacted at bmarekcvr@gmail.com, (727) 726-7725,  or website: www.marekwoodcarvers.com.
         

Supplies: $2.00 to $15.00.

Tools:  Carolyn uses the Hot Tool with a lamp dimmer control.  Tools/controls are available for use in class and for purchase.  Also, tracing paper, graphite paper, pencil, eraser, stylus, and a lamp (clip-on or stand-on desk type.)

Skill Level:  Beginner to Advanced.

Female Cardinal (half-size) – Riley Monroe

Riley has been teaching for many years and is an expert on carving birds.  This is the class for anyone that is interested in learning about bird carving.  Students almost always leave his class with a finished and painted bird.  This is a power carving class so be sure to bring your power tools, and your dust collector.  Riley's amazingly life-like birds have won Best of Show honors at carving shows like the Mid-South Woodcarving Show in Huntsville, AL, where Riley lives.  He can be reached at 256-881-2544.
