For someone that has just started carving wood Francis Shepherd's work is amazing.  Actually it's amazing no matter your woodcarving history.  

Francis is currently running a relief carving course on Wednesdays for the next 6 weeks.  Students will learn basic carving techniques while working in Huon Pine.  There are places available in the course.  Please get in touch if you wish to join.  Tuition: $250, materials $25
