Wood Shaving Workshop

Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Kikezuri ‘Wood Shaving’Workshop with artist Gavin Roberts (for Primary & Secondary Teachers)

In this workshop teachers will learn to work with wood organically without specialised woodworking materials.Gavin will teach participants to shape wood in a low impact way to create a Kikezuri sculpture. These forms have been used for mediation and mindfulness for centuries.

Kikezuri is a style of Japanese‘wood shaving’ in which small shapes and forms are created for the simple purpose of making something you can keep in your pocket or hold in your hand.Wood shaving is different from wood carving in the fact that you are not in charge of deciding the end result, you must listen to the wood you are holding in your hands and allow the wood to guide you as you shave it as it is meant to be shaped.

Prior booking essential via Eventbrite.
