Fan-Carving is the art of riving long-fibered wet wood and then turning and interlocking the blades to create a 3-dimensional design. This almost lost Old World folk art precedes the early 1600's. This video demonstrates the art of "riving" the fibers to create the blades for fan-carving. We are hoping to preserve this Old World folk art of Fan-Carving along with it's meaningful legends and cultures. It was Scandinavian and European.
