Course Offers

A thousand years of traditional craftsmanship is reinterpreted in this course. The foundation is the basic techniques of weaving and basketry, which are taught in the course. Unlike in other weaving courses, however, the focus here is on artistic design, which allows a modern approach to traditional wickerwork.

In this course we take the time to elaborate expressive elements of the human depiction more precisely.
They are not to be missed in the treasure trove of motifs for carving: deer, chamois and ibex are not only the most traditional, but also the most popular animals among woodcarvers.
The course instructor will advise you on choosing motives and help you to learn the inlay techniques step-by-step.
Motifs, scale and style of figures can be chosen freely. Bring along any models or pictures or figures which can be augmented are helpful.
Why not design your own furnitures? And the best of all - the materials are just outside the door of the School.
In addition to the correct handling of wood (storage, selection, cutting, gluing etc.), you will learn how to handle the carpenter's machine tools safely.
