About the Course

These chunky little Swedish horses are a great introduction to woodcarving. Their bold shapes can be created with very simple tools, and the stylisation makes it easy for beginners to achieve a really good finished piece.
Over the two days of the workshop you will learn to whittle with a traditional Swedish slojd, or handiwork knife. You will transform your rough pine blank into a neat horse silhouette, before rounding and softening the forms. You will be able to choose the right whittling cut to safely shape the piece, taking slivers of wood away to reveal the final form.

Time allowing, you will be able to decorate your horse with the traditional kurbits style painted motifs.

You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
