Woodcarving Workshop at Queens Park Arts Centre: Carve it in a Day

Woodcarving Workshop at Queens Park Arts Centre: Carve it in a Day

With Jeremy Turner

Jeremy will introduce you to woodcarving with a small, quick, taster project that will enable you to carve a relief, or a dish, or both if you’re quick. The tutor will supply the tools, demonstrate techniques, and demonstrate how to keep your tools razor sharp. To inspire you Jeremy will show his collection of carved objects and provide interesting books and magazines. You may complete your piece by applying tung oil for a natural finish or paint it with watercolour.

With this experience you can take these first steps further to develop your own projects and even join the Monday Woodcarvers!

The wood supplied will be lime and Canadian yellow pine prepared to a uniform 8” x 5”/ 200 x 150 mm size and a 1”/25 mm thickness. The cost will be included in the workshop fee.

Bring your sketchbook and some ideas of what you would like to make.

ABOUT THE TUTOR

Following my sculpture degree in 1970 I went off track for some years learning about building and carpentry, became a woodwork teacher in 1977, then started carving seriously in 1985. Wood as a material, the tools to cut and shape it, the smell of it, having to work slowly and deliberately, then adding colour to the play of light and shadow - all this centres me and grounds me in this physical world. While I love making functional bowls and dishes I use relief carving in wood as the language and medium to reflect and comment on the things that we celebrate and the issues we worry about today. My imagery comes from the things around us and from the natural forms of plants and wildlife.
