About the Course

Peter Berry will guide you through all aspects of this fascinating craft, from inspiration and planning to carving and finishing. He has a relaxed and supportive approach and firmly believes that anyone can carve if they have the desire to do so.
Day one deals with the techniques and planning, selecting wood, using tools and working on a relief carving project.
Day two consolidates your knowledge by working on a 3 diamensional sculptural carving.
We are delighted that Peter has agreed to run these courses at The Rocking Horse Shop. Peter is one of the country’s best known carvers, with regular instructive articles in national magazines. Peter has a wide experience of all aspects of the craft at varied locations throughout the UK, Europe and North America. He has delivered city and guilds woodcarving courses at Leeds college of art and design, and less formal sessions at numerous shows and retailers. A prolific carver best known for human and animal character studies, Peter brings a wealth of knowledge and an infectious enthusiasm to his teaching. He has inspired hundreds of people to experience the sheer enjoyment of woodcarving
