Two Day Course – Cost £140 Deposit £70
Saturday 14th – Sunday 15th July 2018
A two day course learning how to turn a tree into beautiful, functional and unique artefacts using traditional bushcraft and green woodworking tools.
There are few things more satisfying than taking a piece of wood and, using simple tools, carving out something that is special and unique to you.
On this course students will learn how to:
- Select wood from different trees to suit the needs of different projects
- Fell trees of a small to medium diameter using hand saws and axes
- Limb and section a tree
- Split wood to create the desired blank for your project
- Use a bushcraft knife and a crook knife to shape the wood into spoons, spatulas, butter knives jewelry and other artefacts
- Create wooden mallets
This course should come with a warning… carving is incredibly satisfying and addictive you will never look or a piece of wood the same way again
