Woodcarving has been a unique skill since the early ages, and still is considered a fine art. Now you can master this skill by attending a few, simple carving courses.

There are different types of woodcarving that are taught in public courses and classes, and some are listed below.

Robert Howard's Fine Furniture and Woodcarving offers classes in carving fine and rustic objects. The works created can be equally challenging and rewarding while learning to craft them under the experience of the craftsman, and although there will be others in your class, each person is treated individually, so there is no pressure to keep up with one another. Everyone is encouraged to work on their individual piece, and the necessary techniques, introductory projects and exercises will help you create your work of art. No prior experience is necessary, and all tools, equipment, wood and supplementary materials are provided. Classes are held Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; please check the website for timings and further information.

Another local business that holds woodcarving classes is Radha Pedersen. These classes are targeting beginners through to advanced, and the instructors also teach you how to create more 'arty' works, such as portrait sculptures and other fine arts. The best aspect of these woodcarving classes is flexibility; you can start anytime, move onto projects when you like, and work at your own pace. Refreshments are also given in addition to tools and materials. Classes are just $40, and are held at Beenleigh. For more details, please visit the website.

John the Wood is a skilled craftsman that specialises in creating practical projects that are also works of art. Offering two-day courses where you can learn the basic techniques to carving, the correct way to use tools and equipment, and design your own project, this is a short course that produces guaranteed results. Courses in 2012 are held in both June and October, so there is still plenty of time to plan ahead and register. Both courses are held at Capalaba, and morning and afternoon tea is provided as well. For more information, including previous student's portfolios and John the Wood's creations, please see the website. To register for the two-day course, please call 0421158361.

So for those with an artistic ambition or who just want to learn the skill of carving, check out the above places for a chance to bring out your creative side.
