East Dorset wood carving workshop0
Young people in East Dorset are being invited to join a free three-day green wood carving workshop with Dorset furniture designer, Karen Hansen at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne.
The workshop runs for three days from Monday 29 July to Wednesday 31 July and is open to young people aged 13 years or older. Participants need to sign up to attend all three days.
The young people will be invited to carve their own permanent feature as part of the sculptural greenwood hedge in the new wild water area at the Centre.
They will be shown how to use professional carving tools and techniques and then have a go at producing their own 3D images.
In addition to the young people attending the course, people aged 60 or older are also invited to help work with the young people to develop ideas and add a view from the past. They would only need to attend on Monday 29 July.
There are only 10 places available for the young people so anyone interested should call the Allendale Centre on 01202 887247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or go to the Allendale Centre Facebook page for more information – www.facebook.com/allendale.centre.
