Hello, I'm Roli, founder of The Hall of Bright Carvings.

I started my journey in woodcarving with a short carpentry and joinery course, I then went on to take a longer furniture craft course. During both courses, I became more interested in carving detail into the pieces than the act of constructing them. This led to me taking a three year Diploma in "Ornamental and Historical Woodcarving" at the City and Guilds of London Art School.

Since 2005, I have taught woodcarving at adult education colleges and from my studio in Greenwich, as well as accepting commissions from individuals and churches. Come along and discover this special craft and spark a new passion!

Roli was a great teacher, friendly, patient and helpful. I made a lovely spoon as my first ever carving project and the wood provided is most beautiful. Very happy!

Such a great experience! Roli was such a lovely, attentive and knowledgable instructor. I could not recommend the class highly enough.

Roli is a brilliant teacher.
He perfectly and patiently took us over a journey of carving a spoon from a block of wood, explaining every step, and answering any questions we had.
The class was in his studio, really nice space with the necessary tools for everyone.
The atmosphere was great, relaxing and supportive, and everyone was really nice.
It was a fantastic value for money, indeed!
I now know how to use some of the carving tools to be able to start my journey
I've never carved before, and I'm a proud owner of a spoon that came out of a block of wood (before and after picture!).
Thanks Roli

Greta class bought as a gift for a friend. Friendly accommodating and patient teacher let us experiment as we wanted and supported us all the relay through keeping us lubricated with tea coffee and biscuits. Nice workshop and not too many students at one time. Just right.

I booked this class for myself and my boyfriend and it was a very good experience. The teacher was wonderful and very informative. The creative studio space was very well equipped with tea and coffee! There was natural sunlight and an abundance of tools. It was a wonderful working space. The assignment we had was very good and the materials used was high quality. The best part was we got to sit and have lunch together overlooking the view of the thames. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in trying something new and unique!
