I had done a wand making class before at the site but I enjoyed doing it at home. It was really relaxing and the teacher was very helpful. I was proud of my the wand I made and I would love to try and make something else. Ossian, 10.

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.
