Sometimes when people see vegetable and fruit carving photos, they think, “Oh, I couldn’t do that!”, “It’s too hard” or “I’m not skilled enough”.

Just yesterday, I was asked by someone who was doing some office work for me, how long does it take to learn how to carve.

I’m so used to seeing people learn carving and have good results that I forgot that learning to carve fruits and vegetable can look very daunting to people who have not yet tried.

Also, when you see the work of expert vegetable and fruit carvers, you might feel intimidated to try vegetable and fruit carving.

I want to you know that:

You Really CAN do Vegetable and Fruit Carving.

On July 28th, Avi Livne from Israel watched my online lessons Carving Watermelons – Roses, Buds and Leaves which is part of my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 11 Week Course for Beginners. Avi wrote an email to me that said:

If you are wanting to learn to do vegetable and fruit carving, let Avi Livne be an inspiration to you.

Carving melons really is easier that you might think, once you are shown exactly how, step-by-step. And that is exactly what you get in my video lessons.
