Details: 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? Join one of our Intro to Woodcarving workshops and let experts Stephen Scott or Jon Hall charm and assure you that a carving to be proud of will be in your hands by the end of the course. By following the contours of a real leaf or group of leaves, you will learn the classic set of practical steps to a low relief woodcarving in lime wood.

Even if you have never held a chisel before or can’t draw a design, their inspiring method of teaching will build confidence and correct technique in a relaxed manner.

As sharp tools are the key to success, they will also show you how to keep your tools in top condition to achieve the results you desire.
