During the six-day course, participants will design and carve their own wall-mounted mirror frame using chip carving, a basic form of carved ornamentation. The size and construction of the mirror will follow a very simple pattern taken from the book: “The Pine Furniture of Early New England”, but with plenty of scope for individuals to customise their designs.
