Have you ever marveled at the fine detail or flowing lines of a wood carving? Or perhaps you have wondered what it would be like to carve? Choose from our selection of woodcarving workshops and begin to work with wood.
Join our Intro to Woodcarving workshops and let expert wood carver Stephen Scott charm and assure you that a carving to be proud of will be in your hands by the end of the course. Even if you have never held a chisel before or can’t draw a design, Stephen’s inspiring method of teaching will build confidence and correct technique in a relaxed manner. As sharp tools are the key to success, he will also show you how to keep your tools in top condition to achieve the results you desire. Choose from the one-day taster course or a more in-depth evening course over four weeks.
To tackle a more in-depth project join our 4, 8 or 12 week series of workshops, Woodcarving 'In the Round'. This woodcarving course has been designed for both beginners and intermediates alike and focuses on how to carve in three dimensions (3D, ‘in the round’), working primarily on one block of timber producing a finished sculpture by the end of the course. Understand sharpening techniques, timber identification planning and carving in the round and finally surface finishes. Learners will also construct a sharpening strop from wood and leather, essential when working outside of the workshop.
All personal protection and the use of tools and materials are included. Sets of carving tools are available to buy if you would like to improve your skill at home.
