Spend a day in my woodland workshop learning about Green Woodwork and using a pole lathe. We will cover wood selection; cleaving; axe work; shaping with a shave horse and drawknife; pole lathe turning; finishing and drying. This is a great introduction to a breadth of green wood work tools and techniques. There is usually time to make a few items during the day such as a dibber, priest, spurlte, foot roller, etc. If preferred we can use the shave horse to make a spatula.
I can cater for up to groups of 2 people. Students must be 16 or over or 15 and accompanied by a participating adult. Courses can also be run on weekdays by arrangement.
The course is perfect for novices, you'll get a good grounding in green woodwork practice and theory. For those already turning on a pole lathe I can offer intermediate lessons on the same basis as the beginners course to refine your techniques and design.
What's included in the price?
All refreshments including a hearty lunch of soup or a ploughmans are provided. Use of all tools and materials are also included. There is an opportunity to purchase any tools available such as knives, axes or lathe centres should you wish.
