UK Woodcraft Courses 2017
OUR 2017 WOODCRAFT COURSES
In September 2015 we moved into our fabulous new workshop at Kirkley Hall Farm, Northumberland. Part of Northumberland College, Kirkley Hall Farm's main function is the training of students of all ages in land based skills such as farming and forestry. There might be a bit more cow poo than we are accustomed to but a perfect partner for us I'd say.
The new workhop is very different to the last one at the Flint Mill Workshop at Beamish Museum in Co. Durham, its a large, light and inspiring indoor space with big double doors that give a great outdoor woody vibe. But at the same time its a comfortable space to learn woodcraft all year round
Our range of courses concentrate on helping you acquire the hand skills needed to work greenwood using traditional techniques with a strong emphasis on safety.
It is also our aim to give you an inspiring and relaxing few days in a beautiful and tranquil location.
Courses are taught by myself, Maurice Pyle, a professional woodland craftsman, greenwoodworker and teacher for more than 20 years, many former students, especially those graduating from the NCFE Green Woodcraft Course now also work professionally as green woodworkers.
Everything is provided - tools, materials, tea/coffee and quality time learning a new hand craft. Just bring a packed lunch.
Courses require no previous experience as I will methodically and patiently work through the processes involved in each subject.
If you want to attend a course that is full, please get in touch, as we may have a cancellation or organise another course.
Ideal as a Birthday or Retirement Gift. Gift vouchers are available for purchase against full or part payment for any of our courses.
I'm often asked to provide one-to-one tuition in the subjects listed below and I am very happy to do this, just get in touch to discuss.
Although I teach mainly at my well equipped workshop I will organise courses for other organizations or groups of individuals at their place. If you would like to talk about having me come and teach at your place you can email me HERE.
All courses are bookable on-line but if you would rather do this by telephone, just give us a call on 0191 252 4064.
