Wood Carving/Sculpture Tuition
The art of carving is a tremendously pleasurable and rewarding practice with endless possibilities of subject matter to explore. It is a combination of learning two main fundamental skills; technique and creativity, which are interdependent on each other in order to produce original art forms.
I am a qualified Further Educational tutor with 30 years of experience, both in schools and privately from my studio in Church Knowle, Dorset. This in combination with my own work, has given me the experience of studying numerous areas of form and style, to attain an extensive understanding of the technical and creative skills that are essential to successfully produce both realistic and artistic form. This has enabled me to architect a structured, effective, logical and highly successful method of tuition, for those who wish to learn this challenging and complex subject.
My classes are normally held on a Monday, and are two-hour sessions with a maximum of four students. One to one lessons are also available, as are one, two or three day courses. The classes are very relaxed, informal, and bespoke to suit the individual needs and level of ability of each student. You can either choose your own project to study or use one of mine and I will provide all of the materials, tools, support and advice that you need.
If you would like to learn the art of woodcarving and sculpture, or if you have some experience and would like to broaden your skills, then please contact me for further details via the 'Request Tuition' link below.
