Chris Pye
August 10-14
August 17-21


If you are an experienced carver who wants to expand your technical and creative skills, this course is for you. Participants may sign up for either week or come for both weeks. All types of carving are welcome, including relief carving, carving-in-the-round, and lettering. Participants may embark upon new projects, bring work in progress, or choose to follow a series of exercises. 

Through extensive personal supervision, demonstrations, shared class 'problems,' and individual exercises, Chris helps students deepen their understanding of woodcarving. In addition to the technical requirements of carving, instruction emphasizes the crucial aspect of woodcarving design: how to make carvings 'work' visually and aesthetically. 

Upon enrollment, students are put directly in contact with Chris to assess thier prior experience and plan projects that are well-suited to their skill levels and the scope of the course.

From his studio in Herefordshire, England, Chris Pye works on a broad spectrum of commissions, including lettering, heraldry, furniture ornamentation, architectural carving, and sculpture. He is a Member of the Master Carvers Association and his clients include HRH the Prince of Wales.
