TUTOR: MARION SMITH
Lime has several properties that make it ideal for relief carving and it was especially favoured for delicate work by master woodcarvers like Grinling Gibbons. Seasoned Lime is very stable and is soft enough to be carved and yet firm enough to hold a precisely cut surface, it sands well and smells wonderful.
You will work on a panel approximately A3 in size and 30mm thick and there will be an opportunity to discuss your design and modify to suit your chosen piece of timber.
Over the course you will:
- Be guided through the process from transferring your design to carving
- Be given advice on safe working practice, which tools are appropriate for different tasks and how touse and maintain them.
- Techniques towards finishing your carving will also be demonstrated.
