Two day axe and felling course (Course inactive)

The course was fantastic. I learnt so much about how to maintain your axe and to use them safely and to the maximum of their potential. Dave and his volunteers were really helpful and made the two days really enjoyable! My confidence using an axe has improved greatly since doing the course.

Two day axe and felling course (Course inactive)

Great course! Very knowledgeable and skilful tutor.
Learned how to use and maintain a variety of axe types. Covered a lot of different techniques from felling to carving and how other tools can compliment axes for use in all sorts of tasks.
Amazing how much we got through even though it rained so much!

Two day axe and felling course (Course inactive)

I loved every minute of the course. It was wonderful having access to the tremendous experience of Dave, the course leader. I learned such a lot and I could see that others did too. I'll certainly be putting my newly aquired knowledge to use at the earliest opportunity.

Greenwood Spoon Carving

I attended a rustic table making course earlier in the year and enjoyed it so much I thought I would have a go at spoon carving. On both courses the teaching was very good using a variety of tools and techniques. The facilities in the teaching area and the centre were very good.
I now have a very nice table that I am staining and waxing, and the skills to try spoon carving at home.

Walking Sticks

A really super day. I have made very simple stick in the past, this course has spurred me on to make better sticks. As with many things personal guidance is a million times better than a book [or even You Tube videos].
Dave has a very easy style of teaching. You are guaranteed to enjoy the day

On the course you have a chance to try all the skills necessary to make a table from greenwood. Help is always on hand, and the instructor and helpers were very knowledgeable. A very enjoyable course.

Tool sharpening - one day

A very enjoyable day learning an essential skill that I just haven't got round to learning, despite its usefulness in so many crafts.
The small group brought quite a selection of their own tools and Dave also demonstrated the technique for chisels, planes, spoke shaves and knives.
A good bunch, pleasant surroundings and they even arranged warm, sunny weather for a Bank Holiday weekend. Who could ask for more?

Introduction to Wood Carving for Kids - one day (Course inactive)

This course was booked for my 13 year old daughter who suffers a bit from lack of confidence and who finds embracing new challenges head on a little intimidating.
She thoroughly enjoyed the course, which gave her new skill opportunities with achivable objectives suitable to her level of understanding and ability.

Courses like this should be compulsory in every school curriculum.
