Carving with wood is a rather rare skill these days. Yet anyone with a sharp knife and a block of timber can try their hand at whittling. The tools and materials used have not varied for hundreds of years. Carving workshops in this section include traditional spoon carving in the Peak District, relief carving courses in the Yorkshire Dales, love spoon carving in wales and even rocking horse carving!

I introduce beginners to woodcarving with taster projects that will enable you to carve a relief, a dish, and a simple 3D object. With this experience you can then develop your own projects. In addition, you can shape wood with a spokeshave, make joints with chisels and bore holes with a brace and bit - processes which can lead to handmade utensils and to sculptural pieces that are constructed as well as carved: you might want to design your carving to be incorporated into a piece of furniture. Letter cutting...

Norfolk - Next course on 25th September 2019

This is a 3-hour long beginner's wooden spoon carving course based at either my Norwich workshop or an outdoor venue near Surlingham. You will learn the basic skills required to make your own spoon from reclaimed or green wood. As this is a "taster" course, some processes will be prepped ahead of time and I cannot guarantee you will finish your spoon by the end of the session. You will, however, be able to take home your creation at the end of the course, whatever state it is in! I...
