John & Theresa Murphy Sculptors/Woodcarvers
We      run      practical,      hands-on      courses covering        all        fundamental        carving techniques   in   our   fully   equipped   sculptor's workshop.   To   ensure   a   high   level   of   individual   tuition and   attention,   numbers   are   limited   to   a maximum    of    4    students    per    course.    A minimum   of   2   students   is   required   to   run the course. Participants   may   choose   from   step   by   step projects    in    relief,    three    dimensional    or decorative carving. If    students    wish    to    work    on    their    own projects,   the   course   will   be   adapted   to suit their needs.   Along   with   the   actual   carving,   other   topics addressed,   depending   on   the   length   of   the course, will include; • Aspects of design for woodcarving, • Choosing, sharpening and maintaining    tools, • The characteristics of various timbers    suitable for carving, • Suitable finishes for woodcarvings.   The    aim    of    each    course    is    to    give    the students    the    practical    experience    and confidence   to   allow   them   progress   further with their carving.
