Originally produced by George Hurst in the 90s, this video tutorial provides students with the techniques to learn the basics of figure carving, using the swivel knife, figure bevelers, modeling spoon, and techniques for simulating hair. The video demonstrates the skills needed to make portraits of a horse, a deer, and a bear, as well as some light pictorial carving tutorials. Improve your figure-carving skills in just over an hour!
Note from Jim Linnell: “These videos represent a piece of history. They capture invaluable lessons from great artists, some of whom are no longer with us. Originally produced over 20 years ago, and later digitized from VHS, the sharpness of the image or quality of the audio may not be quite on par with our more modern video technology. However, note that this does not in any way compromise the quality of the instruction.”
The price of the video includes a digital download of this workshop. If you would like to be mailed a USB with your video(s) on it, add a USB Flashdrive to your shopping cart. We use 32 GB drives, so one USB should be needed for your whole order if you purchase less than 8 videos, so add it only once.
Due to the size and length of these MP4 video files, it is not recommended to try to download them directly to a phone or tablet, particularly on an iOS operating system. Check out our FAQ Page for general download troubleshooting.
