Sku # : MarvClass

Marv Kaisersatt taught junior high math in Faribault, Minnesota until his retirement in 1995. In 1976, during a teachers strike, he turned to woodcarving. Marv began teaching Caricature Carving in 1985 and specializes in carving multi-figure scenes from a single block of basswood.

He teaches classes at Whillock Studio in Faribault with an emphasis on designing in clay and carving the caricature from bandsawn blanks. Marv has written a book, “Creating Caricature Heads in Wood and on Paper.” It takes the carver through yet another approach for carving caricature heads, but more important, it lays out a detailed procedure for designing them.

At the International Woodcarvers Congress, considered by many as the premier general woodcarving competition, Marv, as a caricature carver, has amassed a variety of awards and honors.
