Experience the Joy of Wood at Earthwise, Jan & Feb 2014.

The next group of public workshops I am offering will be held at Earthwise, Subiaco, over the weekends of 18 & 19 January and 8 & 9 February 2014.

What a fantastic line up!

If your kids are cranky and bored with school holidays, the January weekend is set up predominantly to provide some great activities for kids to be creative:
  • Make a Useful Carry Box.
  • Make some Musical Instruments.
  • Make a Three Legged Stool.
  • Make a Garden Planter Box.   

The January weekend also offers adults the opportunity to discover the wonders of the Dovetail Joint on the Saturday evening. Learn to cut your dovetails by hand - a very satisfying thing.
They are not that hard to cut really, once you get your head around it!

The Saturday on the February weekend is set up to offer the opportunities for young and old to be working side by side, with kids and adults together. We will have fun making Kitchen Spatulas and Salad Servers and  making Kitchen Chopping Boards.

Saturday night on the February weekend is an opportunity to learn How to Sharpen Your Saws. Bring along that old family heirloom saw and give it some new life! Nothing with modern plastic handles... we are talking about sharpening real saws here.

The whole of the Sunday on the February weekend is devoted to an Introduction to Green Woodworking. I am very excited about this new addition to the workshop list, which follows on from my trip to the USA in late 2013 expanding up my green woodworking skills.Using wood taken primarily from garden prunings, we will make an assortment of projects using ancient traditional tools and techniques.
