Chainsaw Carving

This exciting course uses Camphor Laurel trees that have been harvested from river banks, roads and bridges in the Bellingen area. You will be able to carve large logs knowing that you are also helping the environment.

Throughout the week, you will be immersed in ideas for carving wood. We will discuss chainsaws, basic operation fuels, oils and the environment. You’ll create a workable piece and be able to explore the concepts behind carving wood. You will create a number of fresh carvings including, something for a friend and a young child. You will understand the uses of timber and design finishing oils. It important to feel relaxed and open to sharing creative ideas and having an enjoyable time....

More about the course

Safety gear will be discussed prior to working with saws and understanding human principal when creating so each member can do as they feel, unless the group is involved in discussion!
