I'm passionate about carving, having loved it since I first put chisel to wood over 35 years ago. I also love teaching and writing about woodcarving. In fact, if I wasn't a carver, I think I'd be a writer!
I carve a wide variety of things, from mouldings and lettering to abstract sculpture and figures, almost all to commission. I guess you might call my style 'traditional' in that I leave the majority of my work straight 'from the chisel' and, indeed, I'm a member of the prestigious Master Carvers Association (www.MasterCarvers.co.uk).
You can see my work on my website here: www. ChrisPye-Woodcarving.com.
My most recent venture helping people to learn to carve, or learn to carve better, is an online video-based website, which complements and adds to the thought and effort I put into my books.
Here is the e-learning woodcarving site: WoodcarvingWorkshops.tv.
