I want to address those of you who have thought wistfully about becoming jade carvers as well as the greater number who have not yet considered the possibility.

Further tips will follow. Watch this space!
On this page I intend to add monthly updates on aspects of jade carving. I also plan to invite more experienced carvers to offer a "master-class" on a particular subject of their choice. With this I hope to enthuse both the novice and the expert in this ancient and beautiful art-form/craft. And comments are welcome!
