Learn to make a rocking horse!

Learn to make a rocking horse!

Over the course of 4 days you will learn to make a rocking horse! By using traditional tools and techniques you will hand carve your own rocking horse. Whilst being a simplified version of an heirloom rocking horse, your rocking horse will still use all of the same joinery and constructions techniques used in all of my rocking horses.

Classes are suitable for beginners, whilst still have room for experienced students to carve a more detailed rocking horse.

Due to time restrictions there will not be enough time to paint your rocking horse in the class, there is a lesson spent on simple, traditional paint techniques for you to finish your rocking horse at home. At the end of the 4 days you will take home a carved rocking horse, stand, swings and brackets, saddle, bridle, mane and tail.

Classes are for 2 – 4 students and held in Leongatha, Victoria. Please contact me to register your interest for upcoming classes.

If you have a group of 2 – 4 people we can organise dates to suit you.

Must be 18 years and over. Please ensure that you are fit enough to stand for several hours at a time and can lift 2kg with each arm.

Cost: $1450.00. Materials and tools supplied. Tea and coffee supplied.  Kitchen facilities available.

2018 DATES: Classes in Leongatha (VIC 3953) 9.30am – 5pm.

MAY: Thursday 24th – Sunday 27th.
