Daytime

Learn safe whittling skills and explore the woods at Abney Park Cemetery. This workshop is for children and young people (aged 9-18) with an accompanying adult to learn whittling together.

Please note - one ticket admits 1 Adult and 1 Child

Families who have not attended London Green Wood courses before must bring one adult along for each child attending.

In this workshop

Using locally grown green wood we'll practice safe carving knife grips and make spatulas, staffs, wands or wooden knifes.

For families that want to start whittling at home, this is great introduction for both adults and children to learn how to work safely with knives. We recommend that parents join this course so that they can keep their child safe when whittling at home and be confident in their child's abilities to work with knives and wood.

Now you can

  • Whittle away to your heart's delight
  • Practice your skills and make your own projects at home
  • Supervise your child to use a whittling knife at home.

Did you know?

Wood can be used for all manors of things. Mostly, and certainly in that case of London Green Wood, beautiful wood is used to create an array of stunning objects. However, did you know that wet wood, unlike dry wood, could also conduct electricity? That's what we call versatile!

An inspiring afternoon workshop from which we not only took away our wooden creations but sound knowledge of types of wood and safe whittling tips. Getting to work on the 'shaving horse' with a two handled knife was an added bonus. Great to be outdoors working with our hands - we loved it! Thank you.

About your host, London Green Wood CIC

London Green Wood Community Interest Company is a non-profit community of woodworkers practising rural crafts in the city. Based at Abney Park Cemetery, a small woodland in Hackney, 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 at our woodland workshop 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 also run a twice weekly 'Wood Club' community workshop and monthly volunteering days to build equipment at the workshop.

Notes

We have no indoor space and will be working outside in all weathers (under a tarp if it rains) so please come prepared. No sandals or bare feet please. Walking boots or work boots if you can, a thick sole will help to keep your feet warm in cold weather. In winter, fingerless gloves can be good, but no full gloves when working with tools. If you use reading glasses please bring them with you, you will need these when we practice tool sharpening. Tea and coffee are provided, snacks to share with the group are always welcome.

Requirements

Children must be 9 years and upwards. Each under 18 must be accompanied by an adult who will work with them.

Flexible cancellation policy

Any class can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase. See cancellation policy.
