Master Carver Moving To Felixstowe
Woodcarver Gerald Adams is moving to Felixstowe in August and will be setting up his woodcarving classes in a new purpose-built workshop. Coronavirus allowing, he hopes to start classes this month.
Gerald started his woodcarving business in 1986, carving parts for local furniture makers, and quickly established a reputation for fine wood carving of the highest order. His customer base quickly expanded with commissions from around the world and patrons from Royalty to the film industry. With his artistic background and a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, Gerald has designed and carved some prestigious church work, including screens at Felmingham and East Raynham in Norfolk. Being accepted as a member of the Master Carvers Association in 2001 was a highlight of a rewarding career.
Gerald taught in adult education in the late 90s and gained a Certificate in Education. He has been teaching weekly sessions at his workshop in Norfolk and is really enjoying passing on some of the skills he has gained in over 30 years of professional woodcarving.
The sessions are informal and fun. As well as these short two and a half hour classes, Gerald teaches one-day taster sessions and two-day beginner classes, which have proved very popular, to have a go and master the basic techniques and finish a simple project. Many students carry on with their own carvings and join the weekly sessions if there is space.
These courses are ideal for Christmas or birthday presents for someone to start or expand a new hobby or career. For information on vouchers contact Gerald at: [email protected] / 01508 532111.
