The class is held over an afternoon of approximately 3 hours. There will be a maximum of four students at any one time. All tools, materials, tuition, mid afternoon tea break and toilets provided. You only need to bring along a willingness to learn, an ambition to carve and the desire to create something unique from the world’s, possibly, the universes most beautiful and versatile material. Or you just fancy having a go!
Your tutor for the afternoon will be Lee Dickenson, 29 years a professional wood carver and owner of squashedapplewoodcarving. He will guide you through the rudiments of carving your chosen subject. You will be tapping into his extensive knowledge of woodcarving whilst you create your own carving.
