This is a five-day carving course, for those with some experience in woodcarving. The exciting undertaking will be to carve a Ball and Bellflower motif onto a circular mirror frame. The wood will be lime and the carving is designed to be done with an assortment of carving tools (including a number of number 2 chisels, a skew and a V-tool). While all tools will be provided students, everyone is welcome to bring their own tools.
In this class, the mirror frame will come as a blank with the basic design routed out; this means the carving depth will be set and students need to do a minimal amount of edge shaping before commencing the more important aspect - the carving. The course will begin with an explanation of this historic importance of the design and end with painting and finishing the frame and pinning the mirror in place.
Note there will be a material charge of £25 or less - paid directly to the tutor.
