Carving is an ancient craft. Carving in wood is a combination of both art and craft. Wood can be shaped into utilitarain objects, such as bowls, boxes, and spoons, or carved into forms purely for aesthetic pleasure.

Master every technique you need to tackle a wide range of projects: choose the right woods and tools; make sketches or dummy models; carve in relief and in the round; explore pierced relief and appliqué; learn how to strengthen fragile forms and deal with unexpected splits and knots; shape bowls inside and out; and choose a finish that will complement your carving.
