About the Course

Bowl carving course at Longshaw Estate near Sheffield. Im really pleased to have a beautiful venue to run my Autumn bowl course. Nestled in the middle of the peak district, this is a fantastic place to spend the day carving.
On this course we will learn to carve a large bowl which will give you the knowledge and skills to create more projects at home.
Green wood carving is a fantastic skill to learn as it can be done anywhere, with few tools and very little space. On this course you will use a carving axe, a selection of bowl gouges, a carving knife and a spoon knife.
I will show you how to use all the tools safely and effectively, how to split your log, wood selection, safely carving with your axe and you will be shown a whole host of knife grips that will give you the skills to carry carving at home. I have a whole host of different spoon knives and tools for you to try out and we will talk about various designs and shapes to get you inspired for your next wood carving!
I will also talk about decoration and colour on wood. I use homemade milk paint and egg glaze as well as acrylics and oil paint/linseed oil on my crafts and I will show you how to use these pigments on your own crafts.
All tools and wood are provided, you are welcome to bring your own if you have them though.
This course is taught by in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere by Nadine Grundy who has over 15 years experience teaching art, crafts and woodwork.

Very enjoyable and informative course, so much so I'm in the process of making my own bowl horse. Nadine is a very skilled instructor and crafts person. She brings skills from many areas, she has patience and a wealth of knowledge. Nothing seems to be any trouble and she is able to help, whatever your problem or skill level or ability. This was the second of Nadine's courses I have been on and look forward to going on another to learn another skill. The course finished all to soon. I couldn't recommend her courses highly enough.

An inspiring and very enjoyable course in a lovely setting. Nadine is a brilliant tutor - very encouraging, explains things clearly, lets you work at your own pace and is always on hand to help. I came away with two bowls and the basis of a new set of skills. Great weekend.

I have done a number of courses with Nadine as she is a knowledgeable and patient teacher who works hard to make sure everyone knows what to do and is safe doing what they need to do. I've been on courses with lots of people who are superb craftsmen and not particularly good teachers but Nadine happens to be one of those rare people who is both.
The groups I've been in have been mixed ability and she has still made sure that everyone has gone away with something that they have produced. She has a good eye for detail and encouraging participants to stretch themselves.
Would recommend her courses to both beginners and improvers.
