  • Carving instructions from Chis Pye.



    I have been a fan of Chris Pye for a long time. He is a British carver and I think a great instructor. I have learned a lot from his videos. If you would like to see how he teaches there are some free you tubes just search Chris Pye YouTube.

    If you like what you see he has the Woodcarver Workshop TV on line. You do have to subscribe to the classes. It is about $18 a month and you can cancel at any time. This give you full access for over a 100 plus videos of instruction. Section for beginners that covers tools, cuts, setup, sharpening, holding your work and more. There are videos on in the round carving, shallow and deep relief carving, and lettering. They step by step videos you can play over and over as needed. Now that we have so much time at home it will fill a lot of hours.
    Most other classes are $50 or more for a few hours. This not met as an advertisement but as a recommendation.

    One great thing about this method of learning is it super cheap compare to face to face learning and you can also ask him questions online. He is a master carver, so in order to do this kind of video training, you should have the basics down major before paying plus have some wood carving experience. I got all his books plus took some of his video classes. He is a great instructor in learning advanced carving.

      Di the nice thing about his beginner videos is he go’s into all the basics, different tools and There use, how to hold a tool , different cuts and how to practice them. He covers wood selection. There are 39 videos in the beginner section. I think a new carver could start and pick it up basics with no trouble.

        Not sure about today, but a few years ago he would offer a few weeks of a free trial. No doubt he is an ace for carving information.

          Chris Pye is outstanding! I subscribed to his video classes for a couple of months a while back, and they are excellent.

            We are fortunate today that some master carvers document their methods. In the case of Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721) we can only speculate as to how he did his works. Even his apprentices are long gone.
