About the Course
Learn how to carve wood at the Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle! Six Thursday afternoons - October-November 2017.
This six week course begins with a brief look at the range of carving tools, how to get them razor sharp – and keep them like that. You will then learn about the beauty of wood grain and how to recognise grain direction. At the start of the course you will be carving a set piece which will get you familiar with the carving tools and techniques. Thereafter, you can choose your own subjects bearing in mind the length of the course remaining. In each session there will be demonstrations and talks on set subjects as a group, and also individually as needed.
This course is suitable for beginners and experienced students age 16 +. Please wear comfortable casual clothes, and close toe shoes.
Course meets once a week on Thursday afternoons from 2pm until 5:30pm for 6 weeks.
The Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle has been offering hands on experience and training since 2013. See our website to browse the wide range of taster days, short courses and demonstrations in craft, conservation and traditional building skills.
