Woodcarving classes announced

HENRY — For anyone who has ever had an interest in the art of woodcarving, an opportunity to learn more will be available June 16-18 and June 23-25 in the Henry-Senachwine High School industrial arts room. Times will be 5 to 9 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Donations were given in memory of Norm Crook, an accomplished wood carver with the goal of continuing the art of wood carving. Gene Everett will be instructing the six classes on carving a Bluebill duck at the cost of $85.

Each student will receive all materials needed to construct and paint a working class Bluebill duck. In addition they will receive a Warren Knife/blades, Kevlar carving glove, half-round rasp and a vice pedestal.

The class is limited up to eight students, first-come, first-served, ages 18 and above. Forms may be picked up at the Farm Bureau building in Henry or at city hall in Lacon and sent to: Henry Community CHARACTER COUNTS!, 509 Front St., Suite 3, Henry, IL 61537, by June 2.
