This is akin to having a one-on-one course with a master carver. You'll learn what to look for in a workbench, the importance of preparing and sharpening your carving tools, and how to make exacting cuts and execute a variety of techniques. Like any good instructor, Pye includes practice exercises to make you comfortable with the tools and techniques so you can build yoru skills and carve with confidence. Pye's conversational teaching style will encourage you as you follow the step-by-step instructions and work on a number of notifs, as well as projects for low, high, and pierced relief, and in-the-round.
