About the Course

During this one day indoor workshop you will learn about the design methods and advanced knife techniques that Giles has developed. Building on your existing knowledge and experience of carving by knife, Giles will share with you insights into designing complex and highly detailed wood art, harnessing the strengths of the wood as well as planning the different stages of your carving process and developing your ability to visualise your designs in three dimensions.

Stepping away from the conventional ‘end-product-focused’ approach of most courses, this one day workshop will focus entirely on the carving process itself, the skills, the techniques, and reflecting on how each aspect may be put into practice in your own future projects. Subjects and techniques covered in the workshop include advanced detail carving, decorative carving, texture creation, carving facial features, carving flora and carving in naturalistic, figurative and abstract styles.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
