Introduction to Wood Carving for Kids (The wood carving course is suitable for kids 8yrs+)
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 was booked for my 13 year old daughter who suffers a bit from lack of confidence and who finds embracing new challenges head on a little intimidating.
She thoroughly enjoyed the course, which gave her new skill opportunities with achivable objectives suitable to her level of understanding and ability.
Courses like this should be compulsory in every school curriculum.
