On this two-day workshop with sculptor Natasha Houseago you will design and carve your own sculpture out of wood. Start by choosing your own piece of locally fallen hardwood and then strip the bark, taking time to look at the natural shapes within the wood. Then experiment with your idea, map out your design onto the wood and start blocking out by using a bowsaw, chisel and mallet, finishing with raspa and scrapers. Come with a simple design of your own or Natasha can help you find inspiration on the day. Suitable for total beginners and all materials are included.
