carving is a therapy

Wood Carving as Relaxation Therapy

When I think of relaxation, my mind often turns to the old man sitting on the porch in a rocking chair, a knife in one hand, a piece of wood in the other. And that is how it goes, doesn't it?

Wood carving is relaxing indeed almost like yoga, just you don't need a yoga mat. We believe that wood carving comes in our life at the right timing. Actually, we can say that about everything as there is nothing spontaneous. While carving wood has always its incentive to bring changes for better in your life. 

Either you're bored or lost a friend, or want to get your hands occupied with something. Wood carving always gives its answers.

New rubric - Wood Carver Spotlight

This is why we opened a rubric called «Wood Carver Spotlight» to gather up the stories of carvers we know, or got connected somehow and spread the word about their experience. So others would get the idea, or better say true meaning of how carving wood can help. 

How Tania got into wood carving?

«In 2013 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and my body deteriorated fast. Then I started woodworking just out off a true devotion to the craft that stemmed from an intense satisfaction of turning art concepts into reality. I realized that woodworking was giving me a lot of my mobility back as well as bringing joy back in my life»

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
