Hoolie Prefest: Nic, Alex and Ade


*23rd and 24th May 2019*


Quite possibly the best opportunity for hand forged carving knives…


This is almost a three for the price of one workshop – and a rare chance to catch all three of these incredible makers in the same place, at the same time, working on the same thing!


Nic Westermann, Alex Yerks and Adrian Lloyd, three out of four members of team Hewn and Hone, will spend two days teaching you to create a minimum of two, maybe three brand new, scary sharp carving knives from raw materials.


You'll start with raw steel, bits of tree and some bark and be guided skilfully through the process from start to finish, having the opportunity to use and experience Hewn and Hone sharpening products and be taught how to achieve new levels of sharpness you thought never possible.


Over the course of the two days, you'll be forging, grinding, heat treating, sharpening, carving, weaving and generally having the time of your life.


We plan that all attending this course leave with a minimum of a full-sized carving knife and a detail carving knife, carved and fitted handles and woven bark sheaths to protect those uber sharp edges. There may also be time to go away with a third blade that can be handled and sheathed at home with your new skills.


This is sure to be a popular course, and one that may not be repeated regularly – so do you really want to miss out…?
