Teacher: Inka Petersen
Cost: $55

Learn basic carving and decorating techniques by creating your own pair of chopsticks from a square blank. In this fun 3hr class we’ll cover safety, form and function as well as the unexpected challenge of making something square evenly round, creating a perfect chopstick, and then duplicating it! Finally, you’ll have the option of using milk paint to decorate you own pair of handmade chopsticks. All materials, tools (and bandaids) are provided.
