Learn a new skill and try your hand at creating objects from locally sourced wood. This one day introductory practical course will cover the properties and uses of green wood.
The course will start by looking at basic harvesting, cleaving and shaving techniques. Then we will teach the skills required to create simple craft objects from greenwood.
Course tutor Tom Simpson will teach you the safe use of traditional hand tools such as the draw-knife, shave horse, bill hook and hand drill. Any items that you create throughout the day will be yours to take home. These may include items such as traditional milking stools, spatulas or a wooden mallet.
