Make your own Highlands goblet from scratch in this 2 day course.
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.
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. The components will then be kiln dried overnight.
You will finish all your components whilst now dry with the gouge and knife giving a beautiful tooled finish. 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
We will use a variety of gouges to get everything hollowed to a high standard
The main tool of the course used to shape the bowl, stem and base.
For most of the finishing we will use a Mora 106 carving knife
