This is a beginners workshop, especially designed for younger people (aged 10 – 18 years) and their families. No experience with woodworking or using hand tools is necessary.
The tasks on this workshop encourage skills with hand tools that are fundamental to the continuation of future skills & techniques in green woodworking. It is important to learn to use the tools safely, both for the worker and for those around them.
This is an opportunity to learn woodworking skills using an axe, saw, drill, rasp, shave horse, draw knife, sanding devices, and other hand tools.
The aim of the workshop day is to produce a small wooden stool to take home with you! This will include working to shape the legs, carve a simple seat and create simple joints to join the two. The end product will be a sturdy, stable and comfortable seat for your child to enjoy.
We require that all children are accompanied by an adult who will support them 1:1 in this workshop. If you would like to book for more than one child, please ensure all children are all accompanied 1:1.
We require children to be aged 10 – 18 years old for this workshop.
Adults are to support the student and make sure all activities are carried out safely as instructed by the Workshop Tutor. Students and the adult will be learning skills on this day, with the student as maker and adult as supervisor. However, it is not an opportunity for the adult to make items for themselves.
Please specify the name of child & adult in the ‘Participant Name’ section when booking.
Individual refreshments will be provided, but we ask that all participants bring their own snacks as we are not able to provide a shared food under current COVID guidelines.
