Green Woodworking Sunday Club

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.

If you have attended one of our Green Woodworking Introductory sessions or have already been trained by us in Green Woodworking on another occasion, please book for this Club Session. And don’t worry if this one is booked up as more sessions are coming soon!

This session is a slightly shorter one than usual because at 3pm we will be having an organising meeting for the Green Wood Group. Jo Clarke who runs the fantastic London Green Wood Group at Abney Cemetery Park will visit us during the day and facilitate the meeting. Please do come along, whether you’re an active participant or someone who has expressed an interest in the group. You can have a say and get more involved. Amongst other things we’ll be discussing the aims of the group, ways to make decisions, and what to do next. Have a look also at Paul’s paper distributed at the last BPCG volunteer meeting. And do get in touch with Paul at greenwood@brockwellgreenhouses.org.uk if you’d like to add anything to the agenda.

You’ll need to be over 18. Please wear stout shoes (no flip-flops, sandals, canvas shoes).

Green Woodworking – an Introduction

The Green Woodworking Group at BPCG make things from green wood (freshly cut-down trees) using hand tools and traditional methods.

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).
