What you'll do

We will meet at the famous Peckham totem pole i carved then proceed thru the beautiful Peckham rye common park to my new wood carving workshop space at Aquarius golf course where you can watch my chainsaw tree carving sculpture work & have a chance to carve some sections on a new piece of Oak sculpture i’m working on with me with an axe / angle grinder or chisel. Then you can tell me about any idea you have for a small sculpture (pens & paper provided) & i will carve a piece of London plane tree into an approximate version of what you desire that you can take away with you & finish off later. if you have ever been curious about how totem poles & large scale wood sculpture is made then this is your chance to find out all about it seeing axe, chisel, arbortech carving discs in use with the famous English artist Morganico. There is also a further option of taking guests to our exclusive victorian private members art club in the evenings for dinner afterwards. (The Chelsea art club) . Obviously health & safety is important in a workplace such as this so guests should remain at safe distance from the chainsaw at all times when its in use. Some equipment provided on site for protection
