The news this week has been full of stories about Black Friday. Will the rush for bargains be as frenetic as recent years? Will you miss out on the deal of the year, or hold your nerve for further discounts? If you're anything like us, all this activity will leave you cold. Well, there is another way. Join us, and go green! We offer a some great ways to treat your nearest and dearest to opportunities to get outside.
If your loved one has been talking about getting physical, why not treat them to a day in the woods making a garden bench or stool? If they're keen to get crafty, then there are new workshop days on knife craft, spoon carving and (soon to be launched) jewellery making. Or why not treat the family to some bushcraft fun? Our workshops have been designed for all levels of abilities, and make a perfect gift. Not only do you get to experience the woods, you also get to keep what you make. Click here for our full range.
If you're looking for a different kind of present for your kids or grandkids, check out our Wee Skelfs holiday club. The days are designed to let kids play in the woods, start to explore their natural surroundings, and - most of all - have fun! Booking is now open for the February and April holidays. Click here for details.
If you'd like to encourage someone you know to experience the joy of green woodworking, but aren't quite sure exactly what they'd like, then you can treat them to a gift voucher. We offer vouchers for one or two people to come on any of our workshops, learn a new skill, and meet new people. Click here to buy your vouchers.
And for the spoon fanatics amongst you... Watch this space! We'll be sharing news about next year's Great Scottish Spoon Hoolie in the coming days, including information about pre-fest workshops. Could there be a better gift?!
Whatever you do, stay away from the shopping frenzy and spend more time whittling, carving and hugging those trees. Be wild. Be green. Be free!
