Welcome to Workshops
"How to Read the Book and Throw it away"
(Introduction to whittling and wood carving in the style of D Evans)
As a self taught whittler and woodworker, I encountered many techniques, styles, materials and tools. Wood carving and whittling seemed like a daunting past time.
After buying a few books, watching online videos and talking to people; I found that, as with any form of creativity, it is subjective. However, the fundamentals and basics all boil down to a common theme,
"A sharp blade, some imagination, and a willingness to learn from your mistakes"
In these two beginner level sessions, I aim to dispel any myths, and help anyone who attends to create something new and have fun doing it.
