Nevada Gourd Society
Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle Wall Hanging
Saturday, September 15
9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Students will create the much loved and endangered Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. A pre-cut turtle will be given to each student for the class but students will also learn the steps to cut their own in the future (affordable kits will also be available if students would like to purchase more turtles). The skills learned in this class can be applied to other sculptural wall art. This one of my most popular classes!
The instructor will provide to the students : pre-cut turtle kit, inks, dyes, drill bit, glue, clay, dust mask, and gloves
What you are required to bring
Each student is required to bring the following items to class:
- Dremel or equivalent rotary tool for detail carving
- Eye protection - Safety glasses or eyeglasses
