Obey NOT Stray
Intro To Dog Obedience
Carving For Kids
9 - 12
Sit, stay, don’t pee in the house . . . are these commands only being heard by you?
If so, then this class may help you get on track with your best friend and ease those
frustrations of being a dog owner. This is not just for puppies as old dogs can learn new
tricks. The two most valuable things are how to walk on a leash and to come when
called, the rest is all gravy.
The purpose of this course is to teach kids how to safely use a pocketknife to produce
simply whittled projects out of commonly available materials for their own enjoyment.
Over the three classes students will make a decorative and useful wooden pen, rubber
band shooter (environmentally sensitive insect control system), boomerang, a sturdy
and functional walking stick and learn to sharpen. Beginning with demonstration and
instruction, then hands on making of projects with assistance from the instructor.
All materials and tools needed for the course are provided at no extra cost. For more

Intro to Wood Carving
The purpose of this course is to turn people on to the life hobby of woodcarving. This
will be done by introducing them first to whittling, then later to other forms of carving
through demonstration, instruction and hands on practice. Help and instruction is
provided in safety, tool selection, materials procurement and sharpening.
You will learn to use a knife and other basic tools to carve a simple human face. Some
may make a wood spirit walking stick using the same procedures. Some others may
carve a wooden spoon or cup out of green wood. Those with some experience, can learn
to do caricatures with more involved features, or work on doing eyes, ears, teeth, hair
etc. Tools and materials needed for the course are provided at no extra charge. Extra
materials may be purchased. Magazines, books, catalogues will be displayed. Knives,
sharpening supplies, etc. will be available for purchase.
