Due to the current Covid situation we are taking bookings for our workshops but we are not requesting payment at the time of booking.

** Please Note that all participants in our workshops will be required to show proof of double covid vaccination and wear a face mask for the duration of the workshop.

So, you have acquired a Rotary Tool (Dremel) now what? In this class Gary will look at getting the best out of your new rotary tool and demonstrate the useful and time saving benefits of power carving. Bring along your rotary tool kit including the carving attachments and cutting bits that came with it. If you have a flexible shaft for your tool, also bring the hanging arm. A selection of timber blanks will be available so that you can put your newfound skills into practice.

If you would like to book into our Rotary Tool Workshop on Saturday 26 February 2022 please email us at montwoodsgallery@gmail.com.

The workshops are held at our Wood Gallery at 158 Main Street, Montville, Qld and run for 3 hours from 10am to 1pm. Coffee/Tea is provided. The classes are small and all tools are provided, along with expert tuition by Gary Field. Beginners are most welcome.

Gary’s love of woodcarving is strongly influenced by his love of nature. Over the last 40 years he has developed an individual style and has had solo exhibitions, worldwide commissions and exhibited Australia wide. He is environmentally conscious and has salvaged & collected much of his raw materials and believes that every piece of a once living tree should be used. He uses Australian & exotic fine timbers to create elegant collector spoons, often including semi-precious stones & metals as a feature or a combination of timbers. His approach is to design the shape he wishes to create then select a piece of timber that will become a work of art.

He has won numerous awards, demonstrated his woodcarving skills around Australia, New Zealand, and China and is published in multimedia.

Gary enjoys sharing his love of creating with people interested in developing a new skill and believes that wood carving is the perfect place to start.
