Event Description

Introduction to green woodwork course

Over a series of structured sessions, participants will learn green woodwork basics including:

  • the principles of green woodwork
  • how to work safely with hand tools
  • tool sharpening
  • using green woodwork tools especially an axe and a knife.

We'll make lots of practice pieces which will hopefully turn out to be useful items in their own right: mallets, spatulas, spoons etc. This course runs over 4 Thursdays and is intended to give people a strong introduction to using an axe and a knife and sharpening both, so that you could continue with green woodwork at home or at the Abney workshop after the course. Once you have completed the course, you will be welcome to attend any of our free open workshops, which run every Thursday and on occasional Saturdays, where you can use our tools and use the wood provided. Contact us  ( to book, or with any questions about the course.
