About the Course

Introduction to Wood Carving for Kids (The wood carving course is suitable for kids 8yrs+)

10:00am -3:00pm

Learn to safely use a knife, drawknife and shavehorse to create traditional wooden crafts.

We will create either a bullroarer or spatula with a drawknife on the shavehorse and learn safe knife whittling techniques and make a letter opener or tent peg. We will also create a gypsy rose on the shavehorse, this can also be used as a very effective kindling. Students will learn a wide variety of carving techniques using different tools safely and create wooden crafts and their own handmade mallet to take home with them.

This course is taught in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere by Nadine Grundy who has over 15 years experience teaching art, crafts and woodwork.
