Are you looking for a new hobby? Gary Hazelberg will introduce you to the joys of woodworking with a simple wood carving. During this demonstration, Gary will provide step-by-step instructions and safety tips* to carve your own wooden comfort bird.

Comfort birds are small wooden birds you can hold in the palm of your hand and by rubbing its smooth tail, it brings comfort to those holding one. Gary notes that the process of creating a comfort bird is relaxing too. These special little birds make great gifts especially for those who suffer from anxiety and stress.

If you’d like to try to create your own comfort bird on your own or during the demonstration, you can purchase wood blanks for $15 each at the Town Square Community Center front desk once you’ve registered. You will also need a cut-proof glove, a sharp knife, sandpaper, and wood oil to complete this project.
