About the Course

Walking Stick Course
9:30am-4:00pm

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.

Arrive: for a 9.30am prompt start

Depart: after the course finishes at 4pm

Directions: sent with booking confirmation

What to bring: work clothes; pen and notebook; packed lunch

All adult courses are open to 16 year olds and over.

Enjoyed every second of this course, it was so informative, the tutor helpful, the time just flew away. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

A thoroughly enjoyable and educational day. So much information presented with a calm relaxed approach and all course members treated in a very professional and inclusive manner. The day went by a flash and yet we all came out with our completed masterpieces! It has certainly wetted my appetite and I can see myself continuing to practice the skills gained today (should my retirement from work ever happen!!)
100% recommended.
