Info

Woodcarver and historian, Bob Yorburg, will guide you through a photographic journey into the workshops of some of the most brilliant carvers imaginable. 

Experience the flamboyant style of carousel and architectural carving created by the Jewish immigrant carvers at the turn of the 20th century. Marcus Charles Illions, Charles Carmel along with Solomon Stein & Harry Goldstein raised the art of carousel carving to a new level. Their realism and extraordinary ornamentation defined the Coney Island style of carousel carving. 

The art of the carousel carvers extends beyond amusement rides into the historic synagogues of Brooklyn. These beautiful architectural carvings reflect the designs of the carousels. 

The presentation ends with a question and answer period followed by a live woodcarving demonstration revealing the time honored techniques used to create these magnificent menageries and glorious architectural features.

Reservations required.
