I was signed up for a Japanese woodblock class with Andrew Lorish but it got cancelled because of Covid. I was thrilled when a new date was set for this summer and it got cancelled too because Andrew got Covid. Several weeks ago the class was announced for this weekend and I think I'm the first person to sign up. I'm so out of shape. I really needed something to kickstart me.
Ian says I "spread out" when I'm working but this was worse than normal. I wanted to carve a second block but only had 30 minutes to do it in. I worked like a mad woman and made a huge mess with the shavings everywhere.
And some more.
I came home energized and ready to do some more carving. I have a couple of wood blocks left before I have to order more and I have a head full of ideas. This is just what the doctor ordered, something to look forward to on the long gray days of winter.
