What you will do

Single session

Learn safe whittling skills and explore the woods at Abney Park Cemetery. This workshop is for children (aged 13-18) with an accompanying adult to learn whittling together. When paying, please select 1 Adult and 1 Child from the dropdown on the payment page so we have the correct numbers (the child ticket is free).

In this workshop

This workshop is for young people (aged 13-18) with an accompanying adult to learn whittling together. Using locally grown green wood we'll practice safe carving knife grips and make spatulas and spurtles.

For young people who want to work with wood, this is a great introduction to whittling and sharpening your tools. 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!

About your host, London Green Wood

London Green Wood 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.
