February Rocking Horse Head Carving Course

Students joined us once again in our purpose built carving studios at The Rocking Horse Shop to carve their Rocking Horse Heads.  Expert Rocking Horse Maker and teacher Anthony Dew showed them the traditional approach to Rocking Horse carving using hand tools. The student thoroughly enjoyed the course and carved some beautiful heads.


These courses are aimed at those wishing to make a traditional carved Rocking Horse. Renowned expert Anthony Dew will show you the traditional approach to Rocking Horse carving using hand tools. Previous carving experience in not necessary - all skill levels are accommodated, and each student will successfully complete the carving of a Rocking Horse's head during the Course!

The course fee includes:-

  • Three days individual tuition with master carver Anthony Dew
  • Use of workshop equipment and all carving tools (but you are very welcome to bring your own)
  • Lunch, usually cold meats and salads, as well as refreshments
  • Head & Neck Timber for Medium Size Horse, prepared ready for you to commence carving. (Several 'alternative' medium size heads will be offered. You may upgrade to Large at an additional cost of £15.)
