Once a month on a Sunday, Tony hosts a workshop for two students at Kauri Cliff Art Gallery in Whangamata, Coromandel, New Zealand.
In this 3-hour workshop, you will learn everything from how to identify a shape that hides within the wood, to sculpting, and polishing your piece. It is a unique 1-on-1 experience with a master of wood sculpting and you will learn all you need to take up wood sculpting as a hobby.
You will take home the item that you make on the day.
Alternatively, bring a piece of wood you already own, and turn it into a
unique, personal piece of art!
A wonderful day out with a friend or a loved one.
Also perfect as a birthday or retirement present.
"I attended one of Tonys weekend afternoon courses on wood sculpting and at the end of the course took home a completed piece I could proudly display.
Tony is an excellent and experienced teacher who guides you through the creative process, demonstrating his amazing artistic skills. He is always encouraging and helped me to understand sculpting from an artistic perspective while giving expert, ongoing advice on techniques, how to look for the figure in the wood, the effect of the grain, and which tool is best for each part of the work. His attention to detail and finish is extraordinary.
I would recommend his course to anyone of any age
– you will never look at wood the same way again."
