Description

Set in the stunning rolling hills of Speyside at the very heart of malt whisky country in the scottish highlands. We all know whisky is matured in wood, so why not drink it from wood too, by making your very own unique hand carved wooden whisky tumbler! This course is suitable for all abilities. You will be shown how to select, cleave and carve out freshly felled logs, using a selection of hand tools and devices, including carving knives, shavehorses and pole lathes to create your very own whisky tumblers to take home. Slainte! An introduction to Ged - Creator and Tutor at Gedwood; If you're thinking about doing a workshop at Gedwood or buying one of our handcrafted products, we thought it might be handy for you to know a bit more about the teacher and creator! Ged has been a Countryside ranger for Moray Council for 20 years. He studied forestry at Bangor University and not surprisingly he enjoys being outdoors with nature. Ged first got into green woodworking through renovating his house and garden. He built his own bespoke kitchen from wood and taught himself as he went. He enjoyed it so much he decided he'd like to teach others how to craft beautiful items from natural resources. Ged's interests include hill walking, bird watching, yoga, conservation, environmental issues and northern soul. He's a very calm and encouraging teacher and an all round great human being!
