2014 Carving Classes

As part of our public outreach WBF has partnered with Burlington Parks & Recreation to offer beginner carving classes. Taught by our master carver Kurt Benson, the sessions have been fun and rewarding for all ages. Decoy carving, once a matter of livelihood, has evolved into a source of enrichment for the current day artist or sportsman.

Kurt supplies everything as he patiently guides students to bring cork and wood to life as a duck. Then his many years of experience are even more evident during the crucial painting process. Much like hand-tied flies to a fisherman, these working decoys are a source of pride on the pond or the shelf.

We are very proud to pass on this part of our waterfowling tradition.  

Contact Burlington Parks & Recreation at 360-755-9649 for future classes.
