Our 8-week woodwork course offers an introduction to constructive and direct carving techniques, enabling you to bring your artistic visions to life in a three-dimensional wooden sculpture.

When: Beginning on Thursday 2 May for eight weeks, 6.30pm to 9pm (2.5 hours). There will be a half term break on Thursday 30 May.

Format: The sessions will include design, the creation of maquettes, the use of hand tools for carving, and application of polychromy. You’ll gain practical woodworking experience with personalized guidance and instruction from experienced tutors.

This course is hand tools-only. We will not be using any power tools or machine equipment.

Materials: All materials are included in the price, but you are welcome to bring your own tools or images for inspiration. If you already have a block of wood you’d like to carve, you can bring that with you as well.

Tutor: Sarah Healey-Dilkes and Alistair Burgass are both seasoned woodwork tutors at Rowan. Alistair has a background in boatbuilding and fine art, and creates products for the Kettle’s Yard shop. Sarah has a background in restauration, working freelance for a number of national institutions.

Cost: £200

Accessibility: The Rowan building is wheelchair friendly and has accessible facilities. Please get in touch with us to let us know if there is something you need to be able to participate in our courses.

Transport: We do not have any parking at our building. On street parking is available and free after 5pm each day. There are also regular buses on Chesterton Road just a five minute walk from Rowan.

All of our community evening classes continue to support and help the running of Rowan’s day-to-day activities for adults with learning disabilities.

This workshop is booked on a first come first served basis.
