Chip Carving

An introduction into the art of carving

In this workshop you will learn the basics about carving. By way of introduction, we will learn...
Klassiker
To carve symbols in wood is one of the most original means of human expression. Accordingly, we have a veritable iconographic treasure trove in chip carving, from writing to ornaments in furniture construction and architecture. Furthermore, chip carving opens the way to sculptural design with wood.
In this workshop you will learn the basics about carving. By way of introduction, we will learn to sharpen the tools, the proper handling of the carving blades and mallet, hand-eye coordination, i.e. all the basics needed for sculpting. The feeling for the wood grain and the proportions will come while working with the carving blade. After practicing with limewood and oak, you are free to carve traditional patterns or your own designs into any sort of wooden object (picture frames, nameplates, boards, etc.). You may bring your own wood or wooden objects if you wish.
