“Thank you for the opportunity to participate in your Woodcarving classes with Greg.

The course was a great chance to see if carving wood was something I would like to pursue as I approach a period in my life where I will have more time on my hands.

Greg has a very relaxed teaching style and was knowledgeable about wood carving and other artsy tips for completing my project.

The main thing I took from the course was that I can slow down and actually carve something and create something out of nothing. Many times I would think during the course that a certain power tool would speed up this process but realize that that would defeat the whole purpose of just enjoying what I am doing at whatever speed it takes.”
