Wood Carving - Making a Wood Sculpture - january 5th to 9th

Serra da Lousã

Cerdeira - Home For Creativity promotes, from the 5th to the 9th of January, the Wood Sculpture course, guided by Kerstin Thomas and Renato Costa e Silva.

Taking place in the Schist Village of Cerdeira, the workshop uses the mallet and chisels and introduces the chainsaw and powertools, thus proposing a different way of carving and working with wood.

In this intensive course, you will learn:
Origin and characteristics of the raw material wood;
Development, planning and realization of your ideas;
Selection and preparation of the appropriate wood for your project;
Collage of blocks;
Reflection on aesthetic options;
Carving techniques with hand tools (gouges, mallet);
Work with power tools (Arbotech);
Reflection on surfaces, textures and finishes;
Look, feel and let yourself be inspired by wood.

Each participant will conceive, with the support of the artisans, their own project, plan and choose the raw material and the appropriate tool for each step of the elaboration. If you already have a project in mind, you can contact the trainers in advance, in order to obtain more adequate support.

Equipa Cerdeira Home for Creativity
Situated in the beautiful mountains of Serra da Lousã, in central Portugal, Cerdeira is the perfect Schist Village for your next getaway. Here, the unique relationship between nature, art and comfort offers the freedom to live, relax and create in a truly authentic way.

The Cerdeira Home for Creativity project emerged from the love and affection of two families who decided to rebuild the traditional houses of the village, maintaining their authenticity and uniqueness. These two families were joined by several people who are in the village every day to welcome you with a smile.
