It sounds like a band name, but it’s actually better. “Carving Beagles” is a three-day workshop, scheduled July 24-26 at the historic Tryon Arts and Crafts School. Participants will carve and paint their own wooden beagle likeness, under the precise tutelage of local artisan Bernard Edwards.
Most recently, Edwards carved a handsome sculpture for Saluda’s 52nd annual Coon Dog Day. And while beagles aren’t generally the avid hunters Redbones or Blue Ticks are, their owners and aficionados will agree that this small, iconic hound (think Snoopy) is well worth preserving in 3-D.
$125 for craft-school members; $155/nonmembers (plus $20 for materials). 373 Harmon Field Road, Tryon. 828-859-8323. www.tryonartsandcrafts.org
