    What you'll learn

    Bond with family members and learn a new craft while you're at it! Join this fun and creative family workshop to learn how to create a beautiful stool in wood from scratch.

    In this workshop

    This workshop is available for children and young people (aged 8-18) with an accompanying adult, and is £75 per pair. If you are bringing a child, please select it from the dropdown on the payment page so we are aware.

    This workshop is a chance to spend some quality time with your family whilst also learning a new skill, or building experience in a new passion. Therefore, little or no experience is required for this workshop; simply a desire to get stuck in and learn some fun and creative carpentry techniques.

    Each pair will make one stool together, and will be expertly guided through each individual process step by step. The finished stools will range from rustic to finely finished depending on the experience of each pair.

    As a group you will also create an open fire and bake potatoes on it for lunch!

    Now you can

    • Take home a wonderfully unique and personal handmade stool
    • Continue to create beautiful and fun objects as a family
    • Build upon your skills by practicing the techniques learnt during the class

    Trees are a key contributor to the Earth's water cycle. As well as conveniently taking in carbon dioxide and emitting oxygen, just 1 acre of trees are able to produce as much as 20,000 gallons of water into the air.

    About your host, London Green Wood

    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.
