learn new skills on our

workshops

Whether you’re an expert or a complete beginner, our workshops are made for you! You'll learn new skills, hone existing ones, or gain the techniques you need to move on to more complex creations. 

 

We cover a wide range of activities, from axe craft to spoon carving. Expert green woodworker, and champion chatter, Paul, leads the workshops. Paul has years of tree-related experience, so he can tell you all about the wood you'll be working with to make your creation.

All workshop costs include the use of tools, and you'll be encouraged to take home whatever you make! Teas and coffees are also included, and there's always a campfire burning so please do bring your own lunch to cook. 

Our workshops are aimed at adults. We can accommodate kids over 12 for most workshops, if accompanied by an adult. Please get in touch to find out more before you book. 

spring dates coming soon!
