Wednesdays 6.45pm-9pm starting 10th May 2017 (£160 for 10 sessions)
This 10 week course begins with an introduction to wood carving and a brief look at the range of carving tools and how to use them. Following this, you will learn more about wood and how to recognise wood grain direction as well as how to select and choose the material you'd like to develop your carving on. After this, you will plan and mark out your own piece of work, practice using carving techniques to produce your wood carving, and find out about different ways to finish the surface. Finally, you will create your own wood carving inspired by natural forms.
