Bowl carving course £180.00
On this course we will learn to carve a selection of tools which will give you the knowledge and skills to create more projects at home.
Green wood carving is a fantastic skill to learn as it can be done anywhere, with few tools and very little space. On this course you will use a carving axe, a selection of bowl gouges, a carving knife and finishing tools such as planes.
I will show you how to use all the tools safely and effectively, how to split your log, wood selection, safely carving with your axe and you will be shown a whole host of knife grips that will give you the skills to carry carving at home. I have a whole host of different tools for you to try out and we will talk about various designs and shapes to get you inspired for your next wood carving!
On day one we will learn to use the tools safely and effectively by making a small nut bowl and then start the hollowing of our larger bowl, ready to be finished on day two.
You will go away with your handmade bowls and I will also talk about decoration and colour on wood. I use homemade milk paint and egg glaze as well as acrylics and oil paint/linseed oil on my crafts and I will talk about how to use these pigments on your own crafts.
All tools and wood are provided, you are welcome to bring your own if you have them though.
This course is taught by in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere by Nadine Grundy who has over 15 years experience teaching art, crafts and woodwork.
