Woodcarving Workshop

A couple of weeks ago we attended a woodcarving session. I will admit that prior to attending I was a tad nervous about it (Young kids and sharp knives are not a good combination) but hats off to the chap who ran it because it was a great success.

The session started with some safety rules (carve with the knife facing away from you, carve to the side of your legs not in between them etc.) 

Then he took groups of seven and taught them some basic carving techniques while they made their own little gnomes.

I think the youngest carver was a five year old and everyone enjoyed a fun (and safe) day : )
