“The Art of Deception”: A Duck Decoy Workshop with Master Carver Jode Hillman

Join Morven Museum & Garden on Sunday, October 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a special workshop presentation with duck decoy Master Carver Jode Hillman. “The Art of Deception: Techniques and Theory of Creating a Three-Dimensional Black Duck Silhouette Decoy” will be an on-site class, held outdoors, masked, and socially distanced. All supplies and materials will be provided. Lunch will also be included from Brick Farm Market (selections to be made the week before class). Attendees are asked to dress for the outdoors and weather. Class size is limited to eight students. 

Hillman focuses on the history, application, and usage of traditional hunting decoys produced in Western New Jersey. Students will carve and paint a black duck silhouette decoy. The completed decoy will be suitable for hunting use or decorative display. 

This program is offered in loving memory of fellow carver, Nick Kudla. 

The cost to attend is $200 ($175 for Members of Morven).
