In May, I attended a Don Powel workshop hosted by the Bribie Island Arts centre.
If anyone has the opportunity to attend a carving workshop, grab it with both hands. The experience is worth it weight in gold.
It was a relief carving workshop and I chose a female head.
My piece is in Jelutong, 230mm x 190mm x 50mm thick.
Finished with four coats of Danish oil and a smear of Traditional wax.
I enjoyed this piece, carved over two days, and am very happy with the result.
