Decoy Carving Workshop at Holiday Lake 4H
September 22-26, 2013

Learn to carve your own decoy or sharpen your carving skills!

Beginners Welcome! Carving experience not needed.

Instruction and Kits provided by carver Ed Morrison.

About the Instructor
Ed Morrison lives in Virginia Beach, VA. He has been carving since 1982 and teaching carving classes for over 20 years. He is a member of the Back Bay Wildfowl Guild and the Albemarle Craftsman’s Guild. His working style decoys are carved using knives, spoke shaves, and rasps to help preserve the traditional way of decoy making at a time when the trend is toward power carving.

The Decoy:
First time carvers will carve and paint a Canvasback, one of the most popular of all decoys.
Returning students will carve and paint a decoy of their choice.
Decoys will be carved from Tupelo, a favored decoy wood.
Head position can be straight or turned, and some feather detail can be carved in.
Decoys will be carved using knives and rasps.
