In detail about the workshop

The 'heart' is a symbol for kindness, a giving spirit, passion for what we do etc. It is a shape that does what I like a student to experience.You can work on it freely it can be fastened easily to the bench.

You simply hold your tool only and pace yourself while working.

Each piece can be most individual, you do not need to stick to the template available. I can guide you to sketch your own shape which I cut out on the bandsaw for you then. You experience each step. I explain tools and techniques. We mainly work with specialized rasp, file and sandpaper. These tools are not dangerous and very therapeutic to use.

You can gently begin to get the feel for wood and tools. Within a pretty short time you will find what your mind and hands are able to do.

The workshop is about the search of inherent qualities and how to bring them out your way.

It's about the the texture, the grain, the feel of it as you work on.

It's about art.
