Courses latest – Greenwood carpentry

We are pleased to be able to offer a one day greenwood carpentry course with Richard Stephenson, who is a highly experienced carpenter and excellent teacher. It is an introduction to using hand tools such as draw knives and spoke shaves and will be a very empowering experience. Participants get to make and keep and garden bench and a milk maid stool but more importantly you will get the knowledge to be able to go away and do it for your selves using inexpensive tools and timber.

We have to charge for this one.. but we are working hard to keep prices at a minimum, full waged £35 and students and low income £20. Please use our booking form to reserve your place, limited to 12 participants only.
