Thursday 26th April (beginners)
Thursday 4th October (beginners)
Friday 5th October (improvers)

All courses 80 inc lunch and refreshments; 9.45am - 4.00pm

Steve will guide you safely, step-by-step, through the traditional skills of this increasingly popular craft. From a fresh greenwood log, axe work is used to create the basic form. Two different knives and different carving techniques are then mastered to create a beautiful kitchen utensil.

No experience is needed for beginners courses. The Improvers workshop is aimed at those who have already started to spoon carve & want to refine their technique and learn the finer details.Come on both the beginners and improvers workshops for 150.

Steve is based in Manchester and skilled in a variety of rural crafts including scything and wooden hay rake making. He has run a number of scything courses here at Broadrake and his book "Learn to Scythe" is available from his website
