This is a beginners class, especially designed for younger people. No experience in using wood, knives and axes is necessary.
The tasks on this course encourage knife skills that are fundamental to the continuation of future knife work. It is important to learn to use the knife safely, both for the worker and for those around them. For the younger ones, and anyone who would like to, a small bead-through-the-hole game can be made. This is a great game for hand eye coordination.
Adults are to support the student and make sure all activities are carried out safely as instructed by the teacher. It is not an opportunity for the adult to make items for themselves. Students and the adult will be learning skills on this day, with the student as maker and adult as supervisor.
Must be accompanied by an adult. Ratio of 1 adult to 3 students.
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.
