Maker's bio

I'm a figurative artist who employs a wide range of carving skills to shape wooden artworks -often to commission. As a small boy I dragged a tree from the river - split it with an axe and carved a mask from it, using a sharpened screwdriver. I have better tools now. I carve huge trees, wall relief panels and intricate handheld sculptures. Encouraging people, through workshops, to confidently use hand tools is an enjoyable and natural accompaniment to my own sculptural interests.

Carolyn reviewed: Jason Thomson sculptural woodcarving with hand tools, eccentric whittling courses, Sheffield.

"Hi Jason. What a fabulous day we had! Wood carving is something I've wanted to have a go at for many years and you were the perfect choice with the right mix between standing back and letting us get on with it while keeping an eye out for when we needed more guidance without being pushy or making us feel as if we were getting it wrong. Your love of your craft shines through in the many mediums you work with. We totally enjoyed l every minute of it. I love my oak leaf, as a first go I'm quite proud of the result. Life is short, follow your dreams, go miniature! Putting my request in now for vintage Bowie to work to next time :-} Carolyn and Ian"

Jason Thomson - Sculptor responded:

" Thank you Carolyn for trying something new out with such energy, gaining great results. It was a lovely day and a bit more vintage Bowie next time! I’m in the middle of working out future dates for a three day carving course."

Ruth Crawford reviewed: Jason Thomson sculptural woodcarving with hand tools, eccentric whittling courses, Sheffield.

"Myself and my husband joined Jason for a days wood carving course yesterday. His studio is in a great location and we had a fabulous day. It was very calm and relaxed day. Jason is extremely talented at his craft. He looked after us well. We learnt a lot. I'd highly recommend this course to anyone. I'd never done anything like this before but managed to produce a lovely carving."

Jason Thomson - Sculptor responded:

" Thank you Ruth for your lovely review and the company of yourself and husband. Along with your fellow couple I enjoyed the day and seeing your great results - your owl is delightful!"

"A well organised workshop and friendly atmosphere. Jason gave very good demonstrations and helpful advice. I had a very enjoyable and productive day - I didn't finish what I was making but I hadn't gone with that intention - I'm aiming to join further classes with Jason to learn more and to finish my project."

Jason Thomson - Sculptor responded:

" Thanks for your review Kay! It was a lovely day with a diversity of ideas to help along . Great to work with a lively group happy to learn carving techniques."
