Wood Carving for Furniture, Decorative Objects, and Architectural Decoration (Municipal Technical Institute, Belfast)
Type: Art school class
Policy: 'Conditions of Entry - This class is open to all persons whether taking the Normal Course or not, and no entrance examination or preliminary test is required to be passed. Whilst only one attendance weekly is stipulated for, it is desirable that students of Wood-carving should follow up an extended course of drawing and design if they are to attain a high standard of achievement.
Students joining the class are required to execute a series of exercises graduated according to the skill of the worker, and arranged by the teacher.
Soft wood panels are required for these exercises, and can be obtained in the class-room for a small charge. All work executed in the class is nominally the property of the school, and it must remain in the charge of the teacher until it has been selected for exhibition at the annual exhibition of school work.
Further exercises will be arranged to suit the progress of the students.
Drawing and design exercises will be arranged as required.
Students require a set of tools costing about 10s. It is not, however, necessary to have the complete set at first.
The teacher will supply students with full particulars concerning tools and materials.'
