Tree Spirit Carving (Intro to whittling)

11 April

Course Cost: £85

Venue: The GreenWood Centre, Coalbrookdale, TF8 7DR

Learn some basic whittling techniques, to create a variety of objects including  carving your very own woody character using a process of knife cuts which release the spirit from the wood.

Maurice  was inspired by examples that he saw on a visit to Norway. He has been carving these since, and has successfully taught a number of groups in workshop sessions.

‘I have found that using the knife skills of spoon carving and some fresh cut wood the tree spirits naturally come out of the wood.’

This course will be taught in a group setting around the fire circle, each equipped with  a sloyd knife and a piece of green woodMaurice will take you through a variety of cuts that can be used and applied to whatever you want to make.

This course is taught by Maurice Clother. Tools and equipment will be provided.
