Ever felt the need to carve wood? Want to make your mark? Then check out this Relief Wood Carving workshop led by Olivia O’Connor where participants hand carve their own wooden panel from a choice of designs. 


What is Relief Wood Carving?


Relief wood carving involves removing wood from a flat wood panel, so an object appears to rise out of the surface. Relief carving is a flexible technique that allows you to create a broad range of images, objects and textures.


What happens in the workshop?


This creative experience takes you through the whole process of creating your very own relief carving. Guided by Olivia, you start by developing the design of either a Koi Fish or Gum Leaves. Then you will carve and shape your piece using a variety of woodcarving gouges. You can take your relief carving home to contemplate and impress your family and friends.


If you have done Olivia’s Relief Carving workshop before, we invite you to bring your own design. To ensure your design is possible within the parameters of the workshop, please email John at to discuss. Your design must not include letters or numbers.

Relief wood carving with Olivia O’Connor starts at 8.00am Sunday September 1 and concludes at 12noon, a total of 4 hours.
