Have you ever considered making vegetable and fruit vegetable carvings as a new hobby? You may look at vegetable and fruit carvings and think “I could never do that”. With the right instructions, I know that you can. With that in mind, I want to show you the carvings of one of my students, Dean Phillip, created as worked his way through our 17 Lesson Collection.
You Can Do It!
The 17 Lesson Collection starts with easy basic carvings. That way, you can get comfortable with carving, and with using carving tools and knives. As you gain skill, the carvings taught expand your skills further. You can start with no skill at all and have successes with your carvings right away. Then, you can use them as part of a meal, as plate decorations and bouquets. By the time you finish the lessons in our 17 Lesson Collection, you will be creating beautiful melon carvings and intermediate/advanced arrangements.
Student/Customer Dean Phillip’s Vegetable and Fruit Carvings
Here are Dean Phillip’s photos that he took as he worked his way through our 17 Lesson Collection. Not every lessons in the 17 Lesson Collection is shown in these pictures. But, this gives you a good overview of what you can expect when you join our 17 Lesson Collection. Keep in mind that these are mostly Dean’s first carvings for some of the lessons in the course. And, he did a beautiful job.

You can create lovely Vegetable and Fruit Carvings, too.
As you can see from the photos above, Dean learned a wide variety of carving techniques throughout our 17 Lesson Collection. There are even more carvings taught in the 17 Lesson Collection than are shown in this blog post. I figure that this post is already quite lengthy already.
One of the great advantages of learning and making all of these carvings is two fold. Once you’ve acquired the skills to do all of these different carving techniques, it’s easier to see other carvings, and confidently reproduce the look. It makes it easier make more advanced carvings as you may see in books, etc. You will find many examples throughout our blog showing how students have taken these carving ideas to the next level, and added their own creative variations.
The other advantage is that as a student of our lessons, you can get a beautiful certificate suitable for framing. Here is where you can get more information about our certification. We’ve had past students use their certificates for using in press releases and bios, for showing to prospective employers in their resumes and portfolios , and for framing and displaying in their places of business.
We are proud that many, many of our students have gone on to become professional carvers. You will find many examples of their carving throughout our blog – specifically in the sections named “Carver’s Stories and Photos“.
Dean Phillip received his certification for completing all of the lessons in our 17 Lesson Collection. You can see how his skills advanced as he moved from the simple carvings to more challenging carvings.
With our vegetable and fruit carving lessons, your skills can advance, too.
Even More Lessons
In conclusion, I hope that you have enjoyed seeing these many vegetable and fruit carvings by Student/customer Dean Phillip. A big Thank You goes out to Dean Phillip for all his time and effort with learning and for sharing his photos.
P.S. Note to non-students of ours, we receive more photos than we have time to publish. So, we have to focus on publishing only the photos from our past students.
