About the Course

This is a great introduction to greenwood carving and whittling. Using simple techniques and tools you will learn how to carve a drinking cup or pot using one piece of a greenwood branch. The base will be carefully crafted from seasoned wood and fitted to allow the pot to shrink and seal.

You will learn:

- How to select suitable wood
- Tool selection and sharpening
- Carving and whittling techniques
- Seasoning and finishing

Small Woods use only experienced professionals and woodland practitioners as tutors. We have more than 20 years’ experience of delivering courses and training and a reputation for high quality teaching and professionalism.

Small Woods courses are suitable for all levels of experience and ability and we keep course numbers low. The physical nature and/or woodland location of some courses may make them difficult for people with mobility problems. We do, however, have many years’ experience in enabling all groups to attend courses and will make every effort to ensure a satisfying experience for all.
