Manual carving of text in wood. Nowadays, everything can be done with computers and milling machines. However, manual carving has many more possibilities, allowing you to be more creative with space and dimensions. It has a charm of its own.

 

We start the workshop with the basic principle of the letter I. Afterwards, you will make a letter of your choice, with straight lines, because round is still too difficult to cut. The letter can be carved into the wood. The other possibility is to cut away the wood around the letter so that the letter lies ‘on’ the wood.

 

Sculptor Rein Veldboer works mainly with wood. He makes large solid wooden sculptures. He also makes texts in wood and tries to play with the dimensions of letters. He has been teaching sculpting in wood for many years.
