This woodcarving course has been designed for beginners and intermediates. Previous knowledge of woodcarving or woodwork is advantageous but not obligatory.

This five-day course is a great way to indulge yourself and dive into the timeless world of woodcarving.

Maybe you’ve probably seen all those glorious carvings in stately homes and been curious to have a go and not known where to start.

This series of classes  will be taught by Stephen Scott. Stephen is an award winning City & Guilds trained carver who has been carving since he was a child in Barbados.

His teaching manner builds confidence and his enthusiasm is infectious. He is passionate about wood carving and a pleasure to learn from.  

This is a useful additional skill for someone who has done woodwork before and also open to those who have never held a chisel before and don’t know where to begin. Stephen’s method of carving teaches the correct technique in a relaxing and inspiring manner. We will show you how to work through the process of roughing out, creating the form and how to finish a piece to take home and treasure

You will have a chance to experience carving soft and hardwoods ,including beech and limewood- the traditional timber for fine detail. In this small workshop, you can be guided on how to produce a beautiful multiple leaf carving relief.

As sharp tools are the key to success, you will also get plenty of time to practice how to keep your tools in top condition to achieve the results you desire.
