Your Teacher

London Green Wood is cooperative of woodworkers practising rural crafts in the city. Based at Hackney City Farm, we work with green wood straight from the log and hand tools. All the wood we use has been felled locally.

We have been running events and teaching courses since 2011. We promise a beautiful setting, friendly people, the satisfaction of learning new skills and a fire when it gets chilly. We run courses for adults, for groups and for families. We run workshop sessions for members of our cooperative three times a week and one weekend each month. Membership is open…

The course was great - we learned a lot and my 8yo really enjoyed it. Richard the teacher was friendly, helpful, and informative, and the workshop was extremely satisfying!

My 7 year old son loved this class. He learnt loads about different woods, created two things by himself, using the tools independently and really enjoyed the hour.

Excellent. Both myself and my Grandson really enjoyed it. We are looking forward to the next workshop. Highly recommended.

We loved the whittling workshop! Thank you. It was pitched just perfectly for my 7 yr old daughter, but also fun for me as the adult as I was able to make something too. Jo the teacher was friendly and really good with advice and safety information, as well as telling us about the wood we were using. We tried about 3 different techniques and made a couple of lovely marshmallow sticks. We are inspired to buy our own knives and continue whittling! Thank you.
