Fruit carving is believed to have originated in central Thailand several hundred years ago. One account describes the art beginning with a royal servant who wanted to create a more visually pleasing decorative raft during the Loi Kratong festival.
Since its beginning, fruit carving has been immensely popular during various periods of Thai history including present day. Our one day course teaches students the essential foundation of this historically signifcant art, covering a number of different designs.สอนในกรุงเทพฯและนิวยอร์ค
Students begin by learning basic cutting techniques, creating a basic leaf from cucumber.
Students then move on to a basic flower design, carving a carrot.
After feeling comfortable with the basics, students move on to more complex designs. It should be noted that even beginning students with patience are able to successfully finish complicated designs in a single class. Patience is the key.
Students move into a more complex floral design using raw carrot. A round flower design.
Once students have an understanding of the carrot flower design, they move on to one of the most complex floral designs using raw pumpkin.
After completing smaller sized designs, students are introduced to their first large sized carving challenge: a giant watermelon flower.
After a short break students once again focus on smaller floral designs which complement the already finished watermelon design. This second set of small flowers is more complicated than the first set.
If time allows, students are instructed on how to create scultpures of animals such as the apple swan.
