WOODCARVING WITH JEREMY TURNER

Mondays during term time:
Session 1: 10.30am-12.30pm
Session 2: 1.30pm-3.30pm
Session 3: 4.30pm-6.30pm

“I have been making and carving things in wood since the 1970s and have been hosting the Monday Woodcarvers at QPAC since 2015. With the assistance of several former Monday Woodcarvers I recently completed the Three Post Seat, which is now installed on the bank of the Grand Union Canal in Milton Keynes, as part of the Gyosei Art Trail.”

“As your tutor I aim to bring out your creativity by inspiring confidence with carving techniques and skill with carving gouge and mallet. I welcome people with no previous experience of working with wood as well as those who want to improve their skills; and also artists and sculptors who wish to extend their practice into a new material. You can work at your own speed on your own personal projects.”

“While I supply the tools and wood for your first session, you may of course bring your own tools and wood.”

To book a session, please contact jeremy.turner155@btinternet.com
