Butternut is an easy to carve wood with a beautiful colour and grain when  finished with wax or oil. The instructor will have a small supply of tools that  can be tried but you will need you own basic tools to complete the carving. 
The instructor will also have a selection of finishing products that you can  use to put the final finish on your carving. 
We will be carving a comfort bird. They're designed to fit in the palm of your  hand, so you can rub them for comfort. They also provide a simple easy to  carve introduction into wood carving. Here is a link to an article about them:
