My Courses and Wood-craft Experiences

My Courses

We are delighted that our woodcraft shop is now fully open, and we are pleased to be running our woodcraft courses once again. We continue to follow government guidelines and are running courses with reduced numbers. We will respond appropriately to any new government guidelines and will keep course participants up to date as appropriate. Please do get in touch with any questions or concerns.

Most of my courses and wood-craft experiences are run from my workshop in Ghyll Wood on the fabulous Wyresdale Park estate. The workshop is about 30 metres from the highly recommended Apple Store cafe. This is an inspirational space for getting creative, making use of both indoor and outdoor space. When the weather is cold the log burner keeps things nice and toasty, and the large windows provide great views out into the woods beyond.

I offer a range of courses throughout the year, from short ‘have a go’ sessions to more intensive full day experiences. Most of my courses are suitable for beginners, and I offer some sessions specifically for families and children.

Schools and Education

With an extensive background in education and training, I am particularly keen to support schools and other youth organisations in introducing children and young people to the important role trees and woodlands have played in our past, and the vital role they play today in helping sustain a healthy and viable planetary ecosystem. I am particularly interested in the history and development of our forests and woodlands following the last ice age, the importance of traditional wood-craft technology and the historical use of timbers.

I can offer a range of engaging options, for example;

  • Driftwood Story Telling for younger children
  • Working in cooperation on shared wood-craft projects for all ages
  • Traditional wood-craft devices, demonstrations and have a go
  • Other options tailored to your needs

I am happy to discuss your needs. Please get in touch to find out more.
