About the event
This one-day course is designed to teach participants the fundamentals of Wood Carving.
OWC member Sue MacCullum will guide participants through a series of topics necessary to start your wood carving journey. Topics will include; styles of carving, wood selection, types of tools, safety, selecting minimum tools needed to get started and basic maintenance. She will also discuss finishing techniques, resources and much more.
While this is not a project class, we will put the day’s learnings into practice by carving 1 or 2 simple pieces (as shown), incorporating your new skills.
A range of tools supplied by our Flexcut Carving Tools sponsor will be available for participants use on the day of the course. Participants are encouraged to bring along their own carving tools, if applicable.
A sturdy, preferably cut resistant glove, for your non-dominant hand is essential for course participation. These can be obtained at a hardware or wood working store.
