Meet the artist & maker

Dave started wood carving to contrast his day job as a modelmaker. His hobby has now developed into a business. Influenced by the Green Man myth he initially carved in relief. Over the following years he has explored carving green wood and has been inspired by traditional green wood craft. He now offers spoon carving courses and demonstrates at events and fairs. Dave studied an Art Foundation Course at York College then Modelmaking at Sunderland.
