About the Workshop
In our woodcarving workshop, you will work on your personal project: a decorative carving to take with you home.
Initially, I offer you many designs to choose from for your own personal project. You will learn how to use carving chisels, use of related tools, equipment, cuts and I will guide you through the creative process to completion of the project.
I will be guiding and helping you from the beginning until you are finished with your project. Groups are small so I will spend enough time with every participant for a one to one experience.
We will also talk about different types of wood and stone, tools, sharpening, finishing and staining etc. And I will be always on hand to answer your questions and share my experience with you of this beautiful and ancient art. In the Viking Age, wood was used for homes, for ships, for barns and other buildings, as well as for farming implements and household objects, and many other uses.
This workshop is a great way to learn and motivate those who want to create something ambitious they might not try on their own. The results are often amazing. Carving and sculpting are an immensely satisfying activity that can decorate your life and your home. Come and discover the world of wood carving.
