Learn to Carve. Learn to Carve Better!
Chris Pye has been woodcarving for more than 40 years... and teaching carving for nearly as long.
Always looking for ways to bring his passion for the craft to a wider audience, Chris realised that the Web could provide a new and wholly different way of reaching carvers worldwide.
Sharing this vision is Chris's wife and partner, Carrie Camann, also a carver.
Together they launched Chris Pye's Woodcarving Workshops, an e-learning website featuring a library of high quality, instructional videos. Some focus on one particular aspect of woodcarving: tools and sharpening for example. Others are full length carving projects that range from simple reliefs to advanced work in the round.
Importantly, the website contains a stand-alone beginners' course that assumes no previos knowledge and uses just a few simple tools.
