About the Event

Axes were among the first metal tools made and have been used for a wide range of work, from timber felling, chopping firewood, and even for fine carving. On this one-day workshop, you'll learn how axes work, how to look after them, and how to use them safely! Whether you already have an axe and would like to to get more out of it, or you're wondering which axe would suit you best, this course is for you. Join us for a day of axe wielding fun and learn vital skills you can put to use in spoon carving, garden bench making and more!

Workshop programme 

You'll arrive in the woods by 10am, and be directed to our hand-built, greenwood shelter. From there, one of our experienced trainers will lead you through the workshop. All wood and tools are provided. The day finishes by 4pm.
