Nuristan woodcarving originates from the Nuristan province in Afghanistan. For many years, both men and women have been doing this woodcarving. Nuristani inlay designs each have their own meanings that we’ll learn more about in the class. Nuristani inlay is usually made using soft wood. We’ll provide the supplies for each student.

All levels are welcome. Recommended for ages 16 and up.

We will supply materials and carving tools, but if you have your own, please let us know. You’re welcome to bring your own tools and material to carve. All levels are welcome!
