Courses & Events

Have you ever been tempted to create a pleasing shape from a piece of wood, using tools which have barely altered since the bronze age? Blending handwork and thought, where what you might carve is really made, not just touched in passing.

John can offer courses to suit every ability – from the complete beginner to the more advanced. We also offer courses on tool sharpening.

NB Woodcarving Courses no longer run at West Cheshire College and Wirral Metropolitan College Merseyside due to budget cuts.

Evening Courses for Beginners starting September 2019: Neston Monday and Greasby Wednesday both 7-9pm for ten evenings, tools and equipment provided. Pre booking essential. Please call back or email for further details.
