Welcome to Hoad Woodcarving Academy

My name is Neil Eckert and I conduct classes in woodcarving, sculpturing, intarsia making, marquetry and scroll sawing. As a student you will learn how to use gouges and chisels to create your masterpiece, trace on patterns and how to read the change of grain in wood
to get the best cut possible. In my furniture range I have models for students to look at and follow, with my instruction. Many patterns are available for students to choose from.
