â€śVisitors walked around and were awed by it,â€ť said workshop participant Susan Meyer, adding that witnessing the woodcarving process deepens appreciation for artwork on view in the 2012 Birds in Art exhibition.
Gary Tielens traveled nearly two hours to attend the workshop, one of many heâ€™s taken from Guge.
â€śHe has a wealth of knowledge, and I always learn something new and valuable from him,â€ť Tielens said.
A retired dentist whose goal is to create his own woodcarving designs and enter competitions, Tielens said he especially enjoyed learning about blending and using paints to complete the carved birds.
Here are a few more photos from the Birds in Wood workshop.
Is there a workshop you’d like the Woodson Art Museum to offer?
