City & Guilds of London Art School offers the only undergraduate and postgraduate level courses in Historic Carving in the UK and our graduates go on to work on major heritage projects in cathedrals, historic houses and museums as well as contemporary and historical commissions.

Following the recent retirement of a highly distinguished colleague we are seeking an experienced professional woodcarver and educator to teach 1 day per week term time on our 3 year full-time Historic Carving Diploma: Ornamental Woodcarving & Gilding

Ideally you will have experience of working within or running a commercial woodcarving workshop with a varied workload, in particular tackling different historical styles and periods. We also welcome applications from carvers who use their skills, historical knowledge and techniques to produce contemporary work.

You will need to be a good communicator, enthusiastic about teaching, keen to pass on knowledge and skills, and willing to instruct from first principles through to an advanced level. Experience of teaching, a practical and pro-active attitude, and a willingness to show initiative in the development of new project material are also essential.
