This course is about making. Using a range of hand tools and some simple power tools, you will learn all the skills you need to make beautiful handcrafted vessels and utensils, which could include love spoons and Kuksa: the traditional Lapland wooden cup. The tutor will cover the safe use of carving tools and you will experience working with different timbers and discover why some are better than others. You will also learn about realising your ideas, ergonomics and functionality of design and finishing techniques. Previous experience of carving is not required, but the course will also suit those looking to develop existing skills.
