Enjoy learning the skills of woodcarving & sculpture from Grant Vaughan, a wood artist with over 30 years experience.

The classes are held in Grant's studio which sits on 85 acres of tranquil bushland in the foothills of the Border Ranges in Northern NSW. Grant's personal tuition in small classes and well prepared projects will ensure you enjoy a memorable and unique creative experience. All skill levels catered for; Minimum age 16 years.
You will learn the processes to create a new piece from initial concept through to the final product. Each participant is supplied with the timber to carve a sculptural piece to a set design. The design has a similar aesthetic to Grant's own work. The course includes the use of freehand & technical drawing; making and scaling up models to create full size templates, timber preparation and band sawing; techniques and tools to complete the work, as well as finishing methods.

After studying Architecture in the 1970s Grant Vaughan moved to the north coast of NSW and began making furniture & carving to his own designs. Grant’s work is in many public and private collections including the Powerhouse Museum and Parliament House, Canberra. Since exhibiting his carved forms at SOFA Chicago in 2000 Grant’s work has been acquired by the Boston Museum of Fine Art, Cincinnati Art Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, National Gallery of Australia and numerous private collectors both in Australia & internationally.

Grant has extensive tutoring experience having run classes at his own studio for many years as well as external tutoring including Sturt Winter School, Mittagong and ANU. He looks forward to sharing his skills and experience with you.
