Green woodworking. Stool Making. (2 ½ days)
Aimed at the beginner, this course will teach you the basic skills of green woodworking.

The whole process takes 2 ½ days and is an enjoyable experience resulting in the confidence to be able to create your own designs.
The course is led by Charles Hooper, an experienced green woodworker who has been teaching for 10 years. Charles originally learned green woodworking during the filming for BBC’s Mastercrafts in 2009. Since then Charles has honed his skills making much of the furniture and features at Forest Garden Shovelstrode and is passionate in wanting to preserve this heritage craft by passing on his knowledge and experience.
