Experience Required
This is a perfect introduction to woodcraft with no previous experience required, a perfect way to build team skills and enjoy the mindful aspects of carving outside, with simple hand tools. 

If you have any learning needs such as adjustments due to mobility or other abilities please get in touch, I'm more than happy to explore how to support your learning together. 

Approach to Learning
My approach to running workshops is to make them as enjoyable and as accessible as possible. Together as a group we create a positive learning environment where there is no such thing as a stupid question(!) and everyone is put at ease to relax into and enjoy the day. 

There is a wonderfully meditative state which can be found when carving wood which can be quite addictive! You'll come away with the opportunity to take away all the tools, skills and resources needed to carry on carving at home. 

My preferred venue is located at Lower Sharpham Barn by the edge of the River Dart, home to Ambios and a large scale re-wilding project with some of the most stunning views in the South of England! 

A variety of other woodland venues in South Devon are also available. I can travel to locations within a 250 mile radius on request
