Testimonial

“The recent Shrink Boxes course was a great introduction to this technique, it is similar to spoon-making in that it is a skill which requires few tools and can be practiced at home using easily available timber.  A great mix of interesting people and expert tuition in a beautiful and relaxed setting.”

Dan attended Shrink Boxes 1 day course in June 2013

Traditional devices such as cleaving breaks, shavehorses and pole lathes will be used throughout.

    I booked this course a long time in advance but it was worth the wait. A full-on two days learning skills and making a shave horse to bring away. Maurice delivers the course very well and has a great deal of knowledge to share. Looking forward to the next course!

    It is quite an intensive course, pleased to hear you enjoyed it!

  • Green Woodworking-an Introduction ...... s so enjoyable!

    I had always wanted to give this a go after seeing a pole lathe many years ago at the Chopwell Woods Festival. Very satisfying to learn how to work with green wood and all done under my own steam. I truly feel like I have been at a 'green gym' all weekend.

    I will no doubt be back for another course as it was so enjoyable. Thanks Maurice.
