For generations our family has been involved with carving, arts and crafts. In 1950 my father Prof. Rudolf Geisler-Moroder, built the actual school building. One of his most important life-tasks has been the instructional work concerning carving.
When I took over my father's work-shop in 1984 I developed the idea of teaching and instructing woodcarving and created the CARVING SCHOOL GEISLER-MORODER. Many professional carvers and people whose hobby is woodcarving join us from all over the world. Apart from numerous hobby-courses, which you will find in our program, we also proudly offer an instruction course for officially certified woodsculptor.
Our school is well equiped with 7 classrooms for 8-10 persons for woodcarving, woodturning, painting and drawing, modelling and theory-classes. Our joiner's workshop, production of roughouts, carving-shop, and our PRECARVAUSTRIA shop for requirements of carving and art are situated in the same area.
We have bright and roomy classrooms, equiped with modern and stable machines and tools for free usage. I would also like to point out that we can offer more than 600 models and comprehensive specialized literature. The number of participants, in each group, is limited to 8 persons for almost all offered courses, because we would like to reach optimal results by individual training. Experience has shown that the most efficient training results can be obtained by teaching beginners and advanced together in the same group. In addition to the practical instructions we also offer many theoretical lessons, which are very important for a good success.
We hope you will enjoy our website. My team and I will do our best to meet your expectations and offer you the most successful course experience in Tyrol/Austria.

The Moroder Family
The tradition of woodcarving in the Moroder family dates back 400 years to the South Tirol in northern Italy. Woodcarving has been passed on from generations to generation. Many years ago in 1951 Rudolf Geisler-Moroder started the Austrian Woodcarving School for young students in Elbigenalp, Austria. In 1954 he formed the Geisler-Moroder Woodcarving Company to handcarve woodcarvings that are found all over the world.
In 1984 his son Martin Geisler-Moroder became the director and owner of the company and changed it into a private international woodcarving school that teaches all levels and ages of students from all over the world in the art of woodcarving.
