Green wood carving is a fantastic skill to learn as 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, a carving knife and a spoon knife.
I will show you how to use all the tools safely and effectively, how to split your log, wood selection, safely carving with your axe and you will be shown a whole host of knife grips that will give you the skills to carry carving at home.
