About the Course

Learn to carve wood starting with this nice little project of a Dala horse. The basic shape has been formed using a bandsaw so you will add detail and learn about carving following the grain of the wood. You will learn safe wood carving techniques using the Mora 120 & 106 wood carving knives, or other knives more suitable for children. Some of these safe carving techniques are the same as those used for carving a range of other treen. This is a less strenuous carving project than making a spoon so is ideal for beginners. We will also cover sharpening knives as this is key to safe carving.
