Carved hiking walking stick

X

Description

A one-day walking stick making course you will learn learning the basic skills involved in making your own sticks. No experience is needed but a willingness and ability to use hand tools is essential.

Suitable for anyone with a bit of stick-making knowledge who would like to improve and learn some new tricks is also welcome.

Everyone who attends learns how to straighten a stick, make a steel rod/pin to join the handle to the shank, and use simple tools to carve and shape the hiking stick handle and shank to a finished stage. There will also be the opportunity at the end of the course to purchase components/blanks for you to continue your new hobby at home if you desire.

At Ecclesall Woods we pride ourselves on the high-quality teaching from our tutors and our low class numbers (max 6 for most classes) and a number of our courses also have an assistant.

We have found that smaller class sizes are more productive, un-rushed and allow students to learn more
