Bowl Carving

5/5 1 review

1) Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 Oct 2020

  • 2 days
  • Cost:  £210
  • Tutor: Maurice Pyle
  • Venue: The Northumberland Centre for Greenwood Craft at Kirkley Hall Farm.

On this very hands-on course, held in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside, the technical and safety aspects of using carving axes and knives will be taught so that in no time at all we can concentrate on making a beautiful bowl or two.

By working with the grain, freshly cut wood reveals itself as a strong and flexible material, easily worked with a few sharp tools.

We'll use local native hardwoods such as birch, sycamore and alder.

During this enjoyable and relaxing weekend at our new workshop at Kirkley Hall Farm we'll consider the unique properties of bowls made from green, unseasoned wood, working safely on simple designs using hand tools such as carving axes and adzes, gouges, carving knives and crook knives. 

We'll use tools hand-made by such eminent makers as Gransfors Bruks, Hans Karlsson, Bo Helgesson, Ben Orford and Svante Djarv.

A range of working techniques and grasps will be taught with the emphasis on safety and control throughout.

The most important thing you'll take home is the knowledge, inspiration and confidence to continue making bowls in safety.

Tutor Maurice has been a professional greenwood craftsman and tutor for more than 20 years and carving spoons and bowls for more than 15 years.  A skilled and patient teacher, strongly influenced by Norwegian and Swedish design and techniques in spoons and bowls making. His passion, enthusiasm and authority on the subject will certainly come accross on this course.  He is the founder of the greenwood tool and book emporium 'The Woodsmith's Store'.

Max number of students 4.

  • Good pace of instruction and practice

    I thoroughly enjoyed both days of this course. It was set at a good pace of instruction and practice, so you can take away enough knowledge to develop your skills. A pleasant atmosphere learning alongside a great group of people.
