About the Course

In this three hour introduction to letter carving I will guide you through initial mark making to get you used to the tools and wood before moving on to carving a large letter of your choice to take home with you. This course is aimed at complete beginners so no former knowledge or skill is required.

Student feedback :
"Anyone can have a go at wood carving .. I was a bit doubtful as have no artistic skills but always wanted to have a go. Sarah is such a lovely person, very friendly and very informative, and very talented. I came away with a fun piece of carving that I was proud of!"

I have run my own woodcarving business for 10 years, having graduated from Portsmouth University with a degree in Restoration and Decorative Studies. In 2015 I completed the Prince's Foundation Building craft apprenticeship scheme. I regularly run letter carving workshops as part of London Craft Week at the Prince's Foundation headquarters in Shoreditch.

Other woodcarving tuition is available if you have a project in mind, email me the details and I can tailor the tuition to you.
