Join us for a one-day workshop learning the art of chip carving with artist Keunho Peter Park. This is a traditional technique for creating decorative patterns on wooden surfaces and Park will guide you in chip carving using just a few simple hand tools. Participants will receive two carving knives, and a wooden 4×6” photo frame to embellish with their chip carving pattern.

He holds a B.F.A in painting from South Korea’s Kookmin University and an M.F.A. in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the Rochester Institute of Technology.
