    with Jeremy Turner

    Following a session of drawing in which you project how you want others to see you, or perhaps how you think others see you, in sketches or more considered drawings, you will select whatever you choose as most appropriate for a design to apply to the material you use. This can be sycamore, redwood, lime, plywood or MDF. The tutor will bring in a selection in suitable thicknesses.

    The outline shape can be cut with a coping saw or on the bandsaw. Surface detail and texture can be carved on both sides. Then the piece can be mounted on a supporting base and painted.

    All tools, paint and materials will be supplied.
