Courses description

Come and celebrate the last, glorious days of summer by learning to carve a green man, green woman or even a green animal with a skilled and experienced professional woodcarver and teacher!

Over two days, our tutor Alistair will guide you through the process of carving one of these ancient and mysterious faces in oak using traditional gouges and chisels. All tools and materials are provided and this course is suitable for any skill level, from absolute beginners to those with some experience.
 
All tools and a block of oak measuring 200 x 170 x 20mm will be supplied, or feel free to bring your own special piece of timber if you prefer.

Come with some ideas of what kind of face you might like to carve and Alistair will help you to make it happen. You’ll learn about the history of foliate faces as well as gaining skills in traditional carving. This will give you a real insight into some of the oldest and strangest sculptures to be found in Britain.
