This day serves as an introduction to the Green Wood Corner at Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses. Having completed the introduction, you will become a member of the Green Wood group, and therefore able to participate in all subsequent sessions. We will cover:
- What green woodworking is
- Aims and principles of our group
- Basic safety principles
- The participant agreement
- An introduction to some key tools used in green woodworking – axe, drawknife, pole lathe
You will leave the day having made your own object from a log! Previous examples include a rolling pin, a garden dibber and a rounders bat…
Tea/coffee provided. Please provide your own lunch.
Please note that there is a suggested fee for this day in order to raise funds to grow the group and purchase new tools. Concession tickets are available, as are free tickets for those unable to pay. This is on an honesty basis – we intend to be as inclusive as possible.
Also note that if weather conditions are particularly bad, we may decide to postpone sessions at short notice, as we operate entirely outdoors. Sessions will be re-scheduled for a suitable time.
