Description

Set in the stunning rolling hills of Speyside at the very heart of malt whisky country in the scottish highlands. Suitable for both beginners and the more advanced. Following on from the introductory course, if you would like to spend more time on the lathe and turn something a little more intricate to take home with you, then you will be able to spend the day honing your skills using more pole lathe tools such as the roughing out gouge, skew chisel and the ferret. And take home with you your very own turned rolling pin, garden dibber or baseball bat. 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!
