Woodcarving weekend with experienced teacher, all levels of experience welcome



This two-day course provides the opportunity for a more in-depth experience of woodcarving and the completion of a bigger project of your choice. You can design and carve either a picture relief or a three dimensional form. Throughout the two days I will advise on design, demonstrate tools and techniques and be at hand whenever needed. With a maximum group size of 2, I can give as much individual help and support as is appropriate for each participant. This two day course is suitable for complete beginners with or without woodworking or artistic experience. Experienced artists and carvers will enjoy the opportunity to deepen and develop their skills. I can advise and help with the design process and will support the practical and creative process throughout. The minimum age is 12 and a young person from that age up to 18 has to be accompanied by an adult. For a young person attending with accompanying adult, the two available places on the workshop have to be booked. If you want to bring two young people to the workshop please contact me. I can make that possible. Please don't hesitate to ask during the course for advice on tool sharpening, carving tools and suitable wood for carving. I am always very happy to share my experience on woodcarving. Limited to 2 participants, this 2 day training course for adults takes place in my woodcarving studio in South Devon which is set-up for teaching children and adults. Trained as sculptor my teaching experience is based on over 22 years of teaching woodcarving and other three dimensional arts and crafts to adults and children. I love sharing my experience and enthusing others in working with wood. I can add new workshop dates to the calendar. Please message me for possible dates on weekends or during the week. Please bring your own lunch I will provide hot drinks.

With over 20 years of teaching experience I love sharing my skills and learn from my students. My own artistic work is inspired by the ever-changing and evolving forms in nature and the seasons. Animals and the development of plant forms, are a constant inspiration for me. Working wood with traditional hand tools and techniques is a very rewarding experience. Each piece of wood is different and carving is an inspiring conversation with a unique piece of living material.
