Tutor: Geoff Korver

The Introduction to Carving course focuses on the basics of incised and low relief carving and the different types of tools used in carving, chisels, gouges and v–tool. Students will learn the necessary hand skills, how to sharpen tools and how to set up a good carving kit.

At the end of the course, students will have completed an incised project and a low relief panel, and will have the skill needed to undertake basic carving projects independently.

The two day Spoon Carving course introduces students to in–the–round carving using the well–known shape of the spoon as a model. Basic hand skills and sharpening techniques will be taught. Tool use will be extended to include the bandsaw, spokeshave and scraper. Students will finish the course with one or possibly two finished spoons.
