Hope this guy got your attention, besides the usual happenings we customarily have at our monthly meeting like the business part, show and tell, and of course our round robin self introductions; our featured presenter is Randy Glau. Dennis and he started the Woodcarvers of Las Vegas group that meets at Woodworkers Emporium.
Randy has been carving for well over 10 years and much of his training and experience was obtained by attending weekly meetings of a carvers club in Illinois plus attending classes to learn his own, unique style of carving. He prefers doing work "in the round" rather than flat relief work. Hopefully he'll bring a number of his whimsical carvings to his presentation. I've seen a many of them personally and his caricatures have a unique quality that make them his own creations. One bit of advice he was told and follows is to not try to do an actual representation of someone -- they'll never be happy with it! We tend to see ourselves in a different light than we actually are.
The meeting will be at Jamie's studio/school Wood It Is located at 2267 West Gowan #106 in North Las Vegas. Should you have an questions or need further directions you can call her at 702-631-1870. Our meetings are open to the public so feel free to invite any of your friends who have expressed an interest in woodworking and especially caricature carving. You know the drill about limited seating so bring your own if needed.
See you there --- John
