About the Course

With gouge, chisel and mallet in hand you’ll learn the art of traditional relief wood carving, and at the end of the day take away your own tactile piece of artwork.

We’ll teach you how to carve with the grain, using the way the wood grows to make the work easier. The day’s course will cover tool sharpening, layout of designs, wood selection and carving technique.

No matter whether you have a design in mind or feel like you can’t draw for toffee, everyone will make something beautiful to be proud of.

We run regular courses throughout the year – in a small, wild, woodland, at the Iona School in Nottingham, or at our purpose built studio in the centre of the city – but you are welcome to be in touch any time to arrange something special. Find your Joy in the the heart of the wood.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?
