Helen Gibson Carves the Animals of the Nativity
Helen Gibson walks you through the process she uses to carve a nativity set camel in the style of the Brasstown Carver’s. Detailed step-by-step color photos walk you through taking a raw wood blank and roughing it out, shaping the piece, putting in fine details and through the sanding and finishing process. Helen provides written instructions along with each photo and shares six other nativity animal patterns. Helen is a Brasstown Carver and Resident Artist of the Woodcarving Studio at the John C. Campbell Folk School.
