Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Chainsaw Sculpture

Course Code: ARTS1081

Learn how to create carvings/sculptures with a specialized carving chainsaw. Safety aspects of this skill as well as the maintenance of a safe, properly working carving chainsaw will be emphasized. You will be encouraged to complete at least one carving during the course. Instruction will provide the knowledge and skills needed to create chainsaw carvings whether you are a hobbyist or considering this as a career. Techniques are also suitable for hand carvers as they dramatically speed the process of getting to the fine sculpture stage. The carving chainsaws now available are very safe and lightweight, increasing the manageability of this technique. If you have your own carving chainsaw, it can be used when deemed safe and appropriate by the instructor.
