Silhouette sculptures

Week course full day

Target Audience:

Beginners and advanced


After a sketch, the rough outlines of the sculpture are cut out of the wooden planks or boards. The surface is then worked and shaped with the chain saw and the carving iron. Relief carving techniques are used here. Under expert guidance, great objects are created for the garden, for fences or also for interiors, e.g. as room dividers etc. Depending on taste and personal style, naturalistic or abstract motifs (people, animals, ornaments, florals) can be chosen.
