Woodcarving Workshop

This Woodcarving course caters for beginners and those with varying levels of experience, including those experienced in wood carving who may wish to bring a project they are already working on for guidance and advice.

Participants will be assisted to create a carved wooden panel, with a choice of an oak leaf motif, celtic knotwork design, or a rustic face in two dimensional form. Tool sharpening and an introduction to the main wood carving tool shapes will also be covered during the workshop.

Materials charge: €5 Course Tutor : Andrew St Ledger

CELT, founded in 2001, is a national charity for environmental education and training and is an award-winning provider of training in traditional and ecological skills, focused on promoting caring for the environment and living in a sustainable manner by using locally sourced natural and recycled materials to make the things we need – tools, buildings, furniture, utensils, sports equipment and toys. 

The CELT ‘Weekend in the Woods’ events are held 2 – 3 times a year at Slieve Aughty Centre (Loughrea, Co. Galway) attracting 100’s of participants interested in learning ecological and traditional skills and knowledge and also because of the scenic rural location and opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in between learning modules.
