In-person course

Whittling for Beginners



Using hand-carving techniques and deveoping whittling skills, our expert craftsman, Robbie, teaches you have to create tools and designs with only a log and a knife. This course will guide you through knife safety, how to understand and work with wood, and, ultimately, how to transform raw material into a thing of beauty.

We supply you with all the tools you need to learn and whittle on the day, guiding you to create a basic (but nonetheless brilliant object) like a spoon, bear, or a toadstool. Then, once you've finished, you'll be able to take your new skills with you and begin whittling anywhere!

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
