Saturday 19th May 10am – 5pm
With gouge, chisel and mallet in hand you’ll learn the art of traditional relief wood carving, and at the end of the day take away your own tactile piece of artwork.
A wonderful introduction to knife skills needed to make beautiful things. Lovely location, excellent instruction – perfect for complete beginners like me to experienced carvers. Skills are taught in such a way you can apply them to whatever task you have – and safely!
We’ll teach you how to carve with the grain, using the way the wood grows to make the work easier. The day’s course will cover tool sharpening, layout of designs, wood selection and carving technique.
No matter whether you have a design in mind or feel like you can’t draw for toffee, everyone will make something to be proud of.
Course cost – £75, including all tools, materials, tea, coffee and something sweet.
