Ornate chip carving
With Feargus de Brún
Chip Carving is a wood carving technique dating from the mediaeval period which uses one simple knife to create delicate patterns in wood. The technique offers an opportunity to experience a one to one, Zen-like relationship with a natural material and can be picked up in an afternoon.
Feargus will provide everyone with a sharpened knife and a piece of wood.
You will come away with your own block of linden wood and the beginning of a carved design to finish.
