This one day course will teach you how to carve your own Bird to take home.  

Fan Birds are wonderfully delicate and demonstrate what can be achieved with a little time and skill.

each fan bird is unique and made from a single piece of wood.

 

The tradition of fan bird carving originated from Eastern Europe where fan birds are often given as gifts at weddings to symbolise good fortune.

The day course is suitable for the novice and the more experienced carver.  During the morning you will learn to use your tools safely and efficiently to begin to carve your own bird. The focus of the day is to have fun and relax whilst you immerse yourself in creating an original art work.

All materials and tools are provided for you to make at least two fan birds.
