About the Course
In this hands-on workshop you’ll spend the day creating your very own Christmas reindeer.
Winter woodwork is a perfect activity for a family or group of friends.
A ticket entitles up to 4 people to work together, in order to build a reindeer in a day.
We will use pre-cut wood and simple techniques to build. Activities include splitting wood with mallets and wedges, drilling and pegging wood and carving a head with mallets and chisels.
You are fully supported through the whole process by tutor Stephen Stockbridge, whose enthusiasm for the subject is infectious.
We are delighted to encourage your imagination to run wild, with the option to build an imagined animal or monster. You select different wood for the head, neck, body and legs.
Please note with family groups, a ratio of one child to one adult is required as we will be using tools and parental supervision is needed at all times. In my experience, I would recommend children are aged 8 and above.
The day starts at 10 am, ends at 4 pm with a break at 12.30 for lunch. You can bring a packed lunch to eat here or venture out to a local café.
At the end of the day you get to take your reindeer (or dinosaur!) home with you.
