Class Description:    The knife is one of the oldest human tools, and a simple blade is capable of great expression which cannot be achieved by any other means.  In the Scandinavian tradition, carving knives have become highly functional works of art. In this introductory class we will use wood, metal, leather, and other materials to design knives and sheathes.  We will discuss blade choice, materials, function and design.  Each knife will be made to fit the builder’s hand, and will reflect their personal aesthetic.  Blades, leather, and other materials will be provided.

Notes: All classes take place at the Arbutus Folk School 610 4th Ave. E., Olympia, WA 98501. Classes will be canceled if minimum number of students are not registered. Registering early helps us prepare and offer the highest quality experience for everyone and there is no risk: Full refunds are provided if classes are canceled.   The Arbutus Folk School proudly admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
