Important Technical Lessons

Next Month's Workshops

Dec. 2018

3 Great Technical Lessons!

Invaluable, background stuff for woodcarvers:

How to Keep Your Carvings Clean:  It's so easy to make your work look grubby without realising it. Dirt that gets on the wood before 'finishing' with wax or whatever is just that; it's not the same as later patination from handling.

Tool Outcomes: How to make the most of your tools, which are far more versatile than you might imagine! Chris shows you at least 9 different cuts, though I lost count, with one tool.

Sections through Relief Carvings: Learn how to create and use a cross section drawing to establish the correct geography of your relief carving. This trick really helps you visualise what you are doing.
