About the event
Join us in Whittle Dene woodland to whittle your very own wizard walking stick. The workshop will include:
- A walk through the ancient woodland to select a hazel pole from which to carve
- Tuition in how to refine the rough pole into a neat walking stick using hand tools such as knives and saws
- Tuition in the finer work of crafting a unique wizard face in the wood
- Hot drinks and a warm welcome from the CIC's own Corraib Mac Caba.
Please note that there is no parking directly on site and the meeting point, Whittle Mill ruins, is a 20 minute walk from Prudhoe train station or 15 minute walk from the villages of Ovingham & Ovington. The walk is through woodland terrain where the ground is uneven in places and can be muddy. Please contact us if you are concerned mobility or access might be an issue for you.
Sturdy shoes or walking boots are required.
This workshop is suitable for over 18s only.
Tools will be provided.
