I have been going to wood carving lessons at Anthony's for nearly 12 months, I have seen myself and other students improve over that time with Anthony's guidance and patience . All equipment, e.g carving chisels , mallets etc are supplied for your use and several types of wood are available for your project.
Evenings are now getting darker, give yourself a new hobby I would recommend having a try at wood carving , ( come and meet new friends and the coffee and biscuits are not bad either).

With Anthony to guide me and supply all the necessary equipment I saw my basic paper design transformed into a simple relief wall plaque. There were different degrees of experience in the class but Anthony was able to spend time with all of us individually and collectively (tea break chats) as he explained the different properties of woods and use of the many chisels and mallets. An interesting and relaxing couple of hours a week.

I was quite nervous about starting a course where I was a complete beginner and had little previous experience of any craft work. I need not have worried. Anthony's courses are relaxed, informative and really enjoyable. He tutors on an individual basis according to your skill level. He patiently guides you through your project giving clear and helpful suggestions in a non-intrusive way. The whole atmosphere is very relaxing and well worth trying.
