Instructor:  David Withoff    Snow Sculptures

Date of the class: Saturday, February 13, 2021

Time of the class: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Location: Pioneer Park - Outdoors near Workshop

This class is for anyone who wants to spend a few hours turning the snow (which we all have to shovel anyway) into interesting artwork instead of just throwing it into a big, boring pile.

Dave builds fantastic snow sculptures in his yard each year by shoveling snow into a temporary wooden box, packing it down, then removing the box and sculpting the snow. He will share his tips and tricks with students, who will each have the opportunity to carve a small snow block. Dave will provide ideas and templates to get everyone started, and the sculptures will be small enough that students might be able to take them home after class!

This class will cover the basics, and Dave will also share information on how to build larger sculptures at home, with just some plywood and simple carving tools, such as sticks and a saw.

Snow SculpturesThe whole class will take place outdoors, and students must wear a mask (that fits securely and covers the mouth and nose) and practice social distancing.

Our workshop will be open and warm, if folks need to go inside to briefly warm up, one family group at a time.
