Green Woodworking – an Introduction
July 15 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pmFree
The Green Woodworking Group at BPCG make things from green wood (freshly cut-down trees) using hand tools and traditional methods. Working with axes, knives, chisels etc., Green Woodworking is about getting to know and creatively responding to wood; making functional objects – spoons, spatulas, chairs, stools and much more. We have a pole lathe and shaving horse, a few tools and a fair amount of wood.
Would you like to join in? We will be spending this Sunday making resources for the Green Woodworking area and learning to use a range of tools safely.
Please sign up if you’d like to get involved (if not already) as a BPCG volunteer. Attending this day of green woodworking will enable you also to come to our Green Wood Club on Sundays which you’ll need to also book.
Upcoming Green Wood Club sessions: Sunday July 29th.
You’ll need to be over 18. Please wear stout shoes (no flip-flops, sandals, canvas shoes).
