Learn to carve basic, yet creative tiny wood sculptures, Comfort Birds.  Use simple tools and find the zen of carving with your hands.  Each piece has a personality all its own.

What is a “comfort bird”?  Wood carver Frank Foust began carving these small birds which he called “…comfort birds because they’re so smooth and soft, and they fit just right in your hand so that it’s comforting just to hold them and rub them.  When gently rubbed, the birds can bring comfort to those struggling with both physical and emotional pain.  [These] small birds serve as tangible reminders that someone loves and cares about them.”
