Maker's bio

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.

Clare Selley reviewed: Woodcarving weekend with experienced teacher, all levels of experience welcome

"A friend and I attended the 2-day course with Almut and thoroughly enjoyed it. She patiently guided us through the techniques required to transform a plank of wood into beautiful carved wooden bowls. I would definitely recommend this course and this tutor."

Rachel and Charlie reviewed: Woodcarving weekend with experienced teacher, all levels of experience welcome

"This was an excellent course, Almut is very knowledgeable as well as being a lovely person keen to share the magic of wood carving! I had very little experience with working with wood and my partner is a carpenter but she catered for both our abilities, would definitely recommend!"

Almut Woolard responded:

"Dear Rachel, Dear Charlie, You are both very skilled in your own individual ways. Seeing you applying your exciting skills is great. Both finished carvings are very personal and beautiful. Thank you for coming and enjoying the course. "
