Woodcarving at Sacrewell

Glyn Mould is our resident woodcarver.  He has been applying his considerable skill and flair to the craft for over 25 years and teaching it as subject since 1984.  The beauty and appeal of his work has lead to many commissions, amongst them:

  • Over 120 village signs, including a special Ambridge sign to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Archers radio programme.  The Ambridge sign can now be seen on display at Sacrewell.
  • Work for the Palace of Westminster, Burghley House, Peterborough Cathedral, Fotheringhay, various local churches and the United Kingdom Supreme Court.
  • Sculptures for the City of Culture celebrations in Glasgow in 1990.
  • A feature for the reception of the National Centre for the Deaf Blind in Peterborough.

Added to all this, Glyn is frequently invited to speak to various local and national groups and organisations.

With the replacement complete, Glyn displays the original he had to work from.

Woodcarving Courses
Woodcarving courses at Sacrewell are aimed to provide the student with a greater understanding of the technical aspects involved in the craft, as well as the time and freedom to practice them.

The Workshop
The workshop is in the Sacrewell Barn.  It houses over 300 gouges and chisels, a variety of mallets and other hand tools.  The band saw and pillar drill help with the removal of waste wood.  The facilities include a wide range of reference books, use of a digital camera and printer copier.  With the aid of this equipment, students with or without good drafting or drawing skills can easily produce designs for woodcarving projects.

The Courses
The Carving Courses are open to anybody who has a love of wood; you do not need to be artistic to be able to carve, but enthusiasm is an essential.  You will receive all the support and equipment necessary to complete a piece of work to your own satisfaction.

Tailor-made courses
Glyn will be happy to arrange tailor-made classes for groups or individuals.  This provides an excellent opportunity for businesses to organise a very cost-effective, popular and appealing team building exercise for their staff.
