Swedish Style horse whittling course with Rix & Co



These gorgeous traditional toys are the perfect introduction to whittling and wood carving and during our one day course Pete will take you through the process of creating your very own horse. Let your imagination and creativity go wild and finish your horse either with a traditional birch bark smoking process or perhaps paint your horse like your very own! One day workshops are held within our studio at the beautiful Sudbury Courtyard, Derbyshire which is set on the edge of the grounds of the National Trust Sudbury Hall and nestled on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The perfect environment for inspiring your creativity.
