About the Course

A one day class in the basic skills involved in making your own sticks. No experience needed but a willingness and ability to use hand tools is essential.

Most of the people who come have never made a stick before, but everyone goes home with a complete stick they have made! 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 ‘proper’ traditional peg joint to fix the handle to the shank and use simple tools to work the handle and shank to a finished stage.

Please let us know if you have any specific requirements or needs.

Refundable up to two weeks prior to course (minus £30 admin fee). No refunds for cancellations within two weeks of course.

All adult courses are for 16 years or over.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tool use are provided for you on the day. Refreshments and biscuits throughout the course. Please bring a packed lunch, notebook and pen and wear suitable clothes for working outdoors.
