Courses at Green Wood Works 2016

Various courses are run from the Barn at Bramley in Surrey; please see the 2016 calendar below for Course agendas and date availability.

mervynmewis-497x1024-497x1024

Courses will explore the local woodland, historic management and the timber which arises from this. The aim is then to prepare timber from the log using a minimum of traditional tools and techniques, progressing onto the pole lathe to turn this timber into various objects and utility uses.

These Courses are ideal for anyone who has an interest in any of the above, regardless of any skill or lack-of they have in historic woodwork. Ideally one needs to be reasonably active (not necessarily fit!) and prepared to be industrious; also though under cover, the Barn is essentially out of doors, so come dressed accordingly. Clothing layers usually start being discarded from early-on as students warm-up.

Tea and coffee will be brewed from the fire, toilet facilities are a short stroll across the lawns. Bring your own mug to ensure you have something to drink from (likely more clean than one I may provide) and sufficient food for whatever you may require for the day. There are no shops or other potential for buying anything within a three mile radius of the Barn.

The cost for tuition, materials and tea / coffee is:

£85 per person for the “Introduction to Green Wood Working Day”

£85 for “Continuing Green Wood Working Day”

£100 for “Make a Garden Bench”

£200 for the two day-Courses “Make a Draw Horse” or “Make a Pole Lathe”

My aim is to get as many people interested and involved as I can. I will run special days for groups of four persons or above. Just ask.
