I really would like to say the biggest THANKYOU to Jordan who must have went through a lot do post this shoe challenge online for us to learn sooooooo very much from. From all the great photos (except maybe the last one because his camera had had enough!), his description of what to do and how to go about it to his jovial pleasant manner. It is my only regret that I just cant give him a great big hug, so this will have to suffice!
He is a great teacher to actually get all of us to complete a carving from an actual shoe ONLINE. AND to have them all turn out just wonderful.
Personally, this little exercise was pretty intense for me. But the end result was one of pure joy. And now since I have learnt so much along the way, not only how to carve a boot but also about myself. I will endeavour to continue to carve and try new things which I might have thought way to hard. But I know now, that if I try, I just might succeed!!!
I was waiting- very impatiently mind you, to see all the other shoes that had been carved in the class. My first reaction was WOW, look at all these great shoes and I couldn’t wait to open the page and check them all out. They are all carved from different hands, but all with the same signature,- Jordan. I really wish we had done it in a class room situation now, so then I can go and touch and feel and look and ask about all these wonderful looking shoes.
- Did you know that I successfully carved a boot??? :-)
