Whittling is addictive! Many consider it therapeutic - it is relaxing, absorbing, creative and richly rewarding giving a a sense of personal achievement. Another bonus it that it has a small and low tech kit list ~ a lump of wood, a craft knife and your lap. This means whittling can be done almost anywhere in and spare time available- and it is also easily transportable.

During this 2 day course you will start from a lump of wood and Dave will teach you traditional hand carving techniques and whittling skills, using craft knives and other specialist hand tools provided to enable you to complete your beautiful carved bird over the two days . There will also be a chance to make the legs and a realistic stone/ wood base and also have a go at pyrography to create feathered effects. Suitable for all abilities.
