Handle and Sheath Making Day Workshop


Handle and Sheath Making Day Workshop

9am – 5pm

Our knife handle and sheath making class taught by Emma F V Smith at the Green Wood Guild will guide you through making a personalised handle and sheath for a blade. Take those blades that have been sitting in the drawer for years and turn them into a stunning tool that will serve you well for life!

Over the course of the workshop you will learn how to make a sloyd knife handle from a block of wood, in the style of Emma’s own knives, a skill that can be transferred and adapted to many blade types and tools. Emma will provide multiple templates for the handle shape, which you will be welcome to adapt and personalise as you carve. You will then hand stitch either a leather blade slip or a full leather sheath (up to you!) to protect your blade. At the end of the day, you will walk away with the perfect wood carving tool that can be used for everything from spoons to shrink pots, as well as being useful in many other larger projects.

This class is suitable for people with no handle or sheath making experience.

A knife blade can be provided on the day (+£15), or you can bring your own (must be a sloyd blade between 35-100mm and we need you to provide dimensions prior to the workshop). If you would like a blade to be provided please email info@thegreenwoodguild.com once you have booked your place

If classes have to be cancelled due to Covid-19, we will get you booked on a suitable date as soon as possible.

Otherwise, all course bookings are non refundable, and class dates cannot be transferred once booked
