Relief and Detail: A Journey through Sculptural Wood Carving

Fredy Huaman Mallqui

Tuition $1,075
Code W1313-23

This workshop is for carvers at all levels who want to learn and expand their knowledge of hand wood carving, tools, and techniques. Participants transform a drawing into a 3-D piece and are invited to work on individual projects that range in form and function. Starting with a wooden block and a design, students dive into their own projects while benefiting from shared critiques. Through discussion and demonstration, the course addresses tool-handling safety and efficiency, sharpening gouge selection, approaches to the carving process through drawing and composition, and thorough step-by-step planning.
