Woodcarving Teaching

Personal Woodcarving Instruction:

Because of the launch of Woodcarving Workshops.tv, other work and family commitments, Chris can only offer limited opportunities for direct 1-to-1 instruction in the forseeable future.

Woodcarving Workshops is the closest thing you can get to sharing a bench with Chris Pye, and some say it's even better than the real thing: it cuts to the chase, you can get him to repeat the lesson over and over, and you can be taught 24/7. The downside is that you don't get a cup of tea!

Next Steps in Carving (Intermediate/Advanced)

"If you are an experienced carver who wants to expand your technical and creative skills, this course is for you. Participants may sign up for either week or come for both weeks. All types of carving are welcome, including relief carving, carving-in-the-round, and lettering. Participants may embark upon new projects, bring work in progress, or choose to follow a series of exercises.

"Through extensive personal supervision, demonstrations, shared class 'problems,' and individual exercises, Chris helps students deepen their understanding of woodcarving. In addition to the technical requirements of carving, instruction emphasizes the crucial aspect of woodcarving design: how to make carvings 'work' visually and aesthetically.

"Upon enrollment, students are put directly in contact with Chris to assess thier prior experience and plan projects that are well-suited to their skill levels and the scope of the course."
