Hitty Doll Carving Class in Vestavia, AL Feb. 27-March 3

February 27 to March 2, 2014, Doll Carving Class, Vestavia Hills , AL
Teacher:  Janet Cordell, Master Carver for the state of Arkansas .  To learn more about Janet and see her work go to 
What We’ll be Carving:  Some people will be carving Hitty, a 6 1/4" wooden doll based on the book, Hitty:  Her First Hundred Years by Rachel Field, and others will be carving their project of choice.   If you would like to carve something other than Hitty, this is fine, but please contact Janet ASAP to make arrangements for her to bring you a blank.  Janet usually brings extra blanks with her which will be available at an extra cost, and if you see a blank on Janet’s website that you would like to buy, please let her know in plenty of time to cut the blank and bring it with her.  Please note that due to time constraints, during the class, you are limited to one project only. 
When:  February 27 to March 3, Thursday through Sunday from 9:00 until 4:00 with a break for lunch (on your own).  You can stay later than 4:00 and carve, but Janet will not be teaching after 4:00. 
Where:  We will be carving at my house in my double garage in the basement.  We carve in the  garage and set up tables.  On this level, there is a finished room where we have coffee and snacks and a bathroom.  It’s very easy to get around if you have a handicap.  The garage is well lit, but there are plenty of outlets available if you would like to bring an extra light.  
Cost:  The cost for the four-day workshop is $250 with a $50 deposit which includes one blank.  Please note that there are a limited number of places available, so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to take the class.  I will have a Waiting List if there are more people wanting to take the class after it’s filled.
