Carving class with Bob Yorburg

Come join Master Carver Bob Yorburg for his Miniature Carousel Animal Carving Workshop held here at the New England Carousel Museum. This year all participants will be carving their very own Dentzel Carousel pig!


The basswood carving kits are designed exactly like full-size Carousel animals and feature multiple piece construction. This authentic method eliminates breakage caused by cross grain problems found on most cutouts and greatly simplifies the carving process. Each kit includes up to 13 pieces of top quality basswood pre-cut to profile. All glue joints are pre-sanded and each kit is pre-drilled for the mounting pole (not included) in addition to basswood parts, each kit includes a color photo of the figure, basic instruction, assembly diagram, painting tips, and dowel rods for joining various pieces. 


The class takes place over the course of 4 sessions and two weekends in January and pre-registration is required in order to attend all sessions. Participants must also attend all sessions.
