Tiki Beat Carving Workshop #1

Here are a couple shots of my first workshop - I chose to start the class off on carving a mask out of Coconut - I gave each student the same design - which is marked out on each log - and had a finished piece on show for them to see where they were aiming at. Their enthusiasm was fantastic - the class was set down for four hours but they were still carving five and a half hours later.















I really wasn't sure how this idea of workshops was going to pan out but so far it has exceeded my expectations with demand all over Australia I have planned trips right up to the end of the year and thats just for the Beginners - now I need to find some extra days in my calendar to go back and do the Intermediate workshops and this is all before I have even got my first intermediate done here in Brisbane, this has turned into a great venture and I love teaching and sharing my skills with other people who are so eager to learn.
Kustom Lane Gallery in Melbourne has come on board to give me a fantastic venue for classes being held in October. Dave Maloney in Canberra has put his hand up and generously offered his Shed to hold Canberra workshops. Thanks guys I couldn't do it without your help.

Big Toe came up with an interesting idea last week about getting myself, Benzart and Crazy Al on a panel at next years Tiki Oasis - if anyone is interested in this idea contact Otto and give him some feedback and support, I'd love to be there and meet everybody and hopefully bring some of my work with me to share.

Tiki Beat Workshop # 2

Another great group of enthusiastic students eager to learn carving 101 - I stepped up the numbers for this one and had an extra three students in the class. I don't want to get too many because I want to feel that I am giving everybody a fair share of my time one on one. This class turned into a "Couples" class which was great to see the gals giving it a go and they held their own. Great job Ladies!














For anyone interested in doing my workshops in Australia please contact me by email so I can guide you to the dates and places I have coming up for the rest of 2010.

Thans Ben - this piece was one I carved a few years ago and it has lived at a surf shop in front of the airport at Coollangatta (surf town) for about six years until we brought our new home - then I picked him up (by crane of course) and placed him in front of the house - he was only there on loan and drew people into the surf shop. The students are fantastic and make my job of teaching a lot easier by enjoying themselves.

Sydney siders I have been offered the Spectacular Seidler House (for you yanks check it out it is a very special modernism home) to hold my workshop in Sydney - very cool opportunity - so please contact me so we can get a workshop happening down there - weekend of 6th and 7th November is looking good for me.

Come on Las Vegas get some numbers together I will be in the nearby neighbourhood of Palm Springs in February 2011.

Hey Andy - if Seattle could get some numbers together I might be able to talk Mrs Tiki Beat to pop over your way whilst we are stateside. I have had some interest from your part of town.
