Woodcarving Commission & Woodcarving School

About the 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.

Woodcarving Courses

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.
