About the event

Following the many queries at the fantastic Ovingham Goose Fair we happily present our very own introduction to Green Woodworking course. This is a 4 hour workshop, designed to fully immerse you in world of green woodworking in our beautiful ancient woodland of Whittle Dene.

At an unbelievable bargain price of £25, (FYI: £60+ elsewhere!) you will experience an intimate group session designed to get you started using basic tools. Our aim is to show you how to start green wood working at home with nothing more than your own garden tools (a hatchet and a knife!).

Whittle Dene CIC's immersive workshop is nestled behind the ruins of the old mill and is full of bird song, there you will find a refreshing cup of morning coffee, practical instruction  and helpful guidance to get you started.

We hope for it to be an inspiring day of hands-on learning and discovery centered around green woodworking and craft. You can try your hand at using all of the tools necessary to the trade as well as helpful hints on how to build your own green woodworking tools at home.

We understand from feedback at the goose fair that there is a need to connect with fellow enthusiasts and so we will give you helpful sign-posts to local festivals and fellow experts who can help you hone your skills in the areas that you are most interested in.

Tea and excellent coffee provided, bring your own packed lunch and your axe if you so wish!

Suitable for ages 18+

Book your spot today and we look forward to creating something special with you in Whittle Dene Woods!
