I really enjoyed the course. Jo was clear and helpful - I learnt loads and even managed to make a little spatula that resembled the idea I had at the start. I am definitely going to carry on car I and will book on further courses. Thanks Jo.

London Green Wood is a non-profit cooperative 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.

The class was easy to follow online and fun. I received my piece of wood in good time and made a great little spatula, finished in the hour after the class. Thanks for teaching me a fun new skill.

I loved this course. I learnt new skills and came away with a really good way of taking a break. I can handle a knife safely and I'm looking forward to carving other things. And my spatula is looking surprisingly good! I'm signing up for the wooden spoon next.
