Issue 191 of Woodcarving magazine is filled with a host of great articles for you.
Our Guest Editor, Will Barsley, describes his visit to the carvers of Jaipur, India; meets multimedia artist Sarah Davis; and explains how his experience restoring the medieval carved angels in Westminster Hall inspired him to make his own replicas.
In our Projects section, Steve Bisco carves an Art Nouveau-style panel; Peter Benson makes some nostalgic Victorian carol singers; Kevin Alviti builds and carves an unusual ‘larping’ chest; Dave Western makes a romantic Valentine’s Day frame; Bob Jubb carves a Mandarin duck netsuke; Cynthia Rogers makes a floral panel; and Mark Ivan Fortune takes us through the steps to carve a Black Forest-style double frame.
In Techniques, John Samworth continues his series on strapwork with basic leaf shapes; and Nic Westermann explains how to adjust adze handles.
In Features, Emma Cook, aka The Tiny Turner, tells us how she tried her hand at carving; Jonathan Sherwood describes the challenges of chainsaw sculpting; and we visit the Patwon Ki Haveli in India’s Golden City.
