    This is a four day course, taught on consecutive Thursdays.

    This course is designed to give participants an introduction to green woodworking using unseasoned wood straight from the log and hand tools. Suitable for all including complete beginners, those who have carpentry experience but are new to green woodwork, and those who have done a little green woodwork and would like to learn more. The course is also an induction to the London Green Wood workshop at Abney Park Cemetery and participants are invited to continue using the workshop after the course.

    Did you know?

    It is well known that trees are capable of living for thousands of years. What is less known however is that trees never actually die of old age. Instead, it is usually insects, diseases and people that cause a tree to die

    In this class

    Through making a series of practice projects, such as spoons and spatulas, you will learn: the principles of green woodwork, safe and confident axe techniques, knife grips from the Swedish tradition of spoon carving, tool sharpening and tool maintenance.

    Now you can

    • Continue making with wood, either at home or at the London Green Wood workshop
    • Give handmade presents to your friends and family

    London Green Wood is a community of woodworkers practising rural crafts in the city. Based at Abney Park Cemetery, a small woodland in Hackney, they work with green wood straight from the log and hand tools. All the wood they use has been felled locally.

    People of all levels of experience are invited to come and discover the joy of making in wood through their courses.

    London Green Wood have been running events and teaching courses at their workshop since 2011. They promise a beautiful setting, friendly people, the satisfaction of learning new skills and a fire when it gets chilly.
