Walking stick course at Ecclesall Woods - one day

I did this course 25th July it was great, I have never done anything like this before . I was a bit daunted when I started and worried I would mess it up. But there was so much help available from the staff . Also it was so hot, but we were constantly reminded to drink plenty. Even if you have never picked up a carving knife, or made a stick give it a go, it is well worth it. You will come away with a stick you can be proud of.
I just hope my son will like it too.

Bladesmithing in Ecclesall Woods

Such an amazing course, Iain and Dave were fantastic tutor's.

I never realised how much hard work goes into forging a blade, I was really happy how my knife turned out, but I do wish we had more time to fine tune a few details.

I would recommend this course to everyone interested in bladesmithing. Any future courses they decide to arrange, I will be more than happy to attend again

Tool sharpening - one day

Had a fab day from start to finish.
I was worried that the course content would not cover my needs, I was wrong, All aspects of tool sharpening was covered during the day, from draw knives to super sharp chisels.
The mysteries surrounding achieving a razor shaft cutting edge melted away with plain and simple techniques using basic equipment that anyone could buy without breaking the bank.
Good course, learnt a a lot.

Walking stick course at Ecclesall Woods - one day

Attended the course on the 6th June,lucky enough to have a great bunch of like minded course members from all walks of life. Dave and his team were very out going and shared all manner of tips. Came away with a renewed vigour to carry on with the knowledge gained from this course, may well attend other courses at this facility, keep up the good work.

Make an Elm bark container : make cord from elm bark

I enjoyed my course with Jasper so much. He was really knowledgeable and eager to share his skills. He is a great teacher and I have recommended him to several friends already.
I came away with an elm bark container that I was extremely proud of and the skills to be able to create more in the future.
I will be back to take a different course later in the year.

Make a 3 legged rustic stool - one day

Absolutely loved this course, especially the draw horse, I could have stayed there forever. Teacher and volunteers were great, I learned loads and Ecclesall Woods is amazing. And I'm really really proud of my stool!

Square Zarzo basket making

Rachael is an amazing tutor - I have done the round Zarzo with her and would have done this course if I wasn't on holiday. She is so patient, gives time to every student and is incredibly knowledgeable about the background of this and many other baskets. I made a really great basket which my wife uses in the garden all the time (not for cheese making though which is what the basket was originally meant for).

Pole lathe turning - one day course

An excellent, practical, course in a splendid setting. Experienced tutor demonstrated and explained clearly and well plus volunteer helpers meant help was always available when needed. All staff friendly and enthusiastic. I felt I'd learned a lot and would do another course there.

Pole lathe turning - one day course

A great day learning a new skill in a delightful environment. The course was hands on from start to finish and the course tutor with 3 volunteers, along with a small class of 6 meant that everyone got the support and attention they needed.

Introduction to green wood craft - a three day course

I had a wonderful time on the three day green wood working course. We were blessed by a beautiful first day which made spending time in the woodland even more special. The last day, we lit a fire to keep the chill off our hands. Lovely knowledgeable people, really inclusive and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended for restbite, reguvination and sense of well being.

Introduction to green wood craft - a three day course

I have been on a few courses of this type but this was different, the people are very helpful and patient and I was really pleased with the items I bought away and the 3 days that I spent learning some new skills. I would highly recommend spending time with these people and I will be signing up for another course.
Many thanks to Dave and his Brilliant volunteers

I attended this course last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact I came away with a strong desire to continue and have already downloaded plans to make my own shave horse !

Dave Jackson is a great tutor - extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I'd like to attend another of his courses in the future
