Bowl Carving

£150.00

A one day introduction to bowl carving

10am to 6pm

Learn to make a beautiful wooden bowl from native green hardwood using ancient hand tools. The adze, used to hollow out the bowl, has been in our culture since the stone age and is a wonderful introduction to the other traditional edge tools used to create your bowl. Over the course of the day you will use an axe, drawknife and pushknife to shape the outside of the bowl, and a gouge, scorp and hook knife to refine the inside.

In addition to giving you an introduction to a variety of hand tools, this course will give you a real insight into the three dimensional functionality of an object which has been used by humans for thousands of years.

Our bowl carving course runs from 10:00 to 18:00, during which time you will learn many different carving techniques, learn about how green wood differs from seasoned wood, and of course, at the end of the day you will take home a beautiful, functional wooden bowl.
