Mr. Capriola has extensive experience giving seminars and lessons on decoy design, carving,
and painting and is available to groups or individuals for instruction. Instruction can vary
from a short, two-hour painting or carving demonstration to a multi-day carving and/or painting
workshop where attendees participate hands-on. Capriola's techniques include the basics
of design and pattern making, use of hand and power tools (emphasis on hand tools), and painting
(oils only). Fees for instruction are negotiable.
