Pat Godin will be discussing and demonstrating the techniques he has developed for carving, texturing and burning feathers.  The students will have pieces of tupelo wood to work on during the seminar, but will have the option to bring their own pre-carved bird.  In addition to showing various methods for creating realistic feathers, Pat will also discuss feather structure and anatomy and how it relates to the decisions we must make as we carve a bird.  Creating variety in feather texture throughout the bird can greatly enhance the quality of the work.
Students will require their own tools including a high speed rotary power tool with various bits, some carving knives and chisels, and a wood burning tool.
