Start With Art Nanaimo would like to introduce Darran Getson, a 42-year-old self-educated carver and stained glass worker who enjoys challenges that express creativity. Drop into Studio 366, 366 Selby Street, Nanaimo, on Wednesday evenings to learn about and practice the basic principles of carving with Darran. The hands on approach and comfortable environment is always a fun experience. In just a short period of time, one will be able to develop their own style that fits them.
Courses will be held on a drop in basis, every Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 pm. Tools will be provided and the excitement only builds as you gain confidence in your own abilities. All one really needs, is the willingness to learn. You will learn wood grain, types of wood, handling tools effectively, expression of self, styles of carving, and line, relief, and chip.
