What you will learn

This is a 2 day course so you must make sure you can do both dates as mentioned in the title. 

 

Day 1 

You will learn all about green woodworking, how to choose the right wood for goblets and the tools used.  You will learn how to use a carving axe and gouge to carve all the components whilst the wood is fresh or green.

Day 2

You will finish all your components whilst now dry with the gouge and knife.   Then learn about how to make a tight mortice and tenon joint to fix the components.  Finally you will learn about chalk paint and decorate and oil your goblet ready to take home   

 

Gouge

We will use a variety of gouges to get everything hollowed to a high standard 

Axe

The main tool of the course used to shape the bowl, stem and base.

Knife

For most of the finishing we will use a Mora 106 carving knife
