Green wood bowl carving is a fantastic skill to learn, 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/chisels, a carving knife and a spoon knife to carve your own bowl. You will be shown how to use all the tools safely and effectively from splitting your log, wood selection and safely carving with your axe. You will be shown a whole host of knife grips that will give you the skills to carry carving at home. I many tools for you to try out and we will talk about various designs and shapes to get you inspired for your next wood carving!
You will go away with your handmade bowl 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.
