The Chris Pye Woodcarving Zone
Chris Pye is an internationally renowned master carver. He is determined to bring the joy of carving to the masses and as a teacher and author he is uniquely placed to offer first class instruction to all carvers, whatever their level.
How can this be achieved? Well Chris can teach you himself, one to one in his workshop on the English/Welsh border.
He takes classes at West Dean College and at various locations in in The USA.
You can read one of his books (listed and available in this section).
You can watch one of his 3 excellent DVDs (again available here).
Or you can subscribe to his new woodcarving channel (launched Spring 2011) which he has painstakingly created jointly with his lovely wife Carrie. Literally dozens of tutorials are available for you to access for a very reasonable monthly fee (no we are not on commission).
Chris has also designed a set of carving slipstones with Norton Pike from The USA and is soon to launch a set of basic woodcarving tools. He has worked with an internationally renowned manufacturer of tools that still use hand forging techniques to produce very fine tools similar to the old Addis & Herring carving tools of yesteryear.
