Greenwood Craft

Description

Fancy carving your very own spoon or knife? Or maybe you’re up for the challenge of crafting a three-legged stool!

Whatever your ambition, we’re here to help you transform green wood into a treasured possession or impressive gift.

Under the guidance of our experienced tutors, you’ll learn how to safely use traditional hand tools including a shave horse, drawknives and axes.

Greenwood craft is the age-old method of making practical and beautiful objects from freshly cut ‘green’ wood and it’s all part of a present-day drive towards sympathetic conservation and sustainable woodland management.

After a lunch prepared on an open fire, you will continue to craft.

Or if wandering appeals to you, feel free to explore the woodland through nature immersion activities that will keep you fully occupied. A campfire- under a parachute when weather inclement- tables and seating under an all-weather shelter, plenty of tea and biscuits throughout, will make this a day to remember.

If you would like to book a Crafting experience for your own group (min. 5 people), please contact us to discuss dates.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All tools and equipment will be provided

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the day.

Lunch provided cooked over and open fire
(Please make sure to let us know if you have any dietary requirements when booking)

Why not consider staying the night before or after the workshop. Staying overnight in our wood will give you a deeper experience of being in nature, taking a dip in the river and enjoying the crystal clear night sky afforded us by our remote location on the foothills of Bodmin Moor. You can hire one of our 5m belltents (with wood burner for the colder months): price for the bell tent is £95.00/night (for up to 4 people). Or you can bring your own tent and camp within our 40-acre woodland: price £10.00/night.
