Green Woodworking – Making a Pole Lathe
30 July 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 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.
At this session, we will be learning to make a pole lathe or a shaving horse.
Would you like to join in? You’d be learning and practising some foundation skills, making a little something to take away, to give to BPCG, and/or helping with building up the group’s resources.
You’ll need to be over 18. Please wear stout shoes (no flip-flops, sandals, canvas shoes).
This is a free workshop but please do book a free ticket.
