Carve a Medieval-Style Leaf Plaque

Ivy Fruit carving by Janine Creaye
A two-day course at Woods Mill taught by Janine Creaye for those who want to learn the basic techniques of woodcarving whilst creating an achievable small relief design. This course will cover the best tools to use, tool sharpening, and wood staining. A short time will be spent on the reserve looking for natural inspiration. Sussex Wildlife Trust commissioned four carvings from Janine in 2011 and they can be seen at Woods Mill, in situ, or here. Sundays 13th & 20th July, 10:00am-4:00pm, £110 for both days.
