Intro Workshops

Our introductory workshops are the perfect first steps into the fundamental skills of green woodwork, including knife work, bread board making and the art of turning. In each of these sessions you will learn about the character of fresh wood, the practice of using hand tools, and the relationship between these two things. All deeply satisfying on their own but also underpinning all the further skills that you can explore in our other workshops!
