Great course, from no experience of wood carving at all, learned to use the axe, draw knife, carving knife and pole lathe, made a mallet a spoon a couple of knives and a rolling pin, not all brilliant but gave me a great basis to work from and thanks to the knive included with the cost of the course can work on pieces at home, all the instructors were friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in giving you the best experience, would recommend this to anyone.
