Introduction to green wood-working
Sat 17 December 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
Join local green wood worker, Paul Pulford. Alongside being a knowledgable trainer he is also an experienced and accomplished gardener, Paul creates wildflower gardens and vegetable patches in inner-city schools and on waste ground. He also uses horticulture as an aid to rehabilitation via the group he started called Grounded Ecotherapy.
Learn to make a variety of Wooden Spatulas for use in your Kitchen, using specialist green wood-working tools (Froe, Beetle, Small Hand Axe, Chopping Block, Draw Knife, Brace & Bit) whilst sat astride an authentic wooden Shaving Horse in the beautiful surroundings of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.
You could also try your hand at making a festive ‘Rudolph’ reindeer using different cuts of wood, complete with antlers made from Holly leaves! They make wonderful gifts for family & friends!
We hope that, using the skills that you learn on the course, you will be inspired to continue this wonderful craft in your own time and who knows, maybe even build your own Shaving Horse to use.
