Knife Making Workshop

A great day! Easy to pickup techniques, a light hearted and informative day - and the best part? You get to walk away with a knife you've made yourself - great for 'Stabby Stabby' Dan.

Knife Making Workshop

What a great way to spend a day. Jamie not only looked the part of a veteran bladesmith, he backed it up with a lot of knowledge and advice gratefully accepted by this novice. The process was clearly laid out and our knife making progress was constantly checked along the way to producing a better than expected result on my first go. Now have a constant reminder of my day when cooking.

Spoon Carving Workshop

Fantastic workshop! We learned so much (including niece Tash and good friend Jules). Terrific teacher in Rowland; makes it look achievable and very clear guidance which assists with the challenging parts of spoon making! Do yourself a favour, do this fun, hands on, well organised workshop. Stressed? Do this workshop because all you concentrate on is the task at hand. Seriously! A really great day. Thanks to Bjorn for great communication pre Workshop too. Thanks again fella's

Our teacher Rowland was fabulous, I just loved making my wooden spoon. I am hooked and I want to do more. I would highly recommend taking this course as you home with skills you never had and tools to practice with! The day went so quickly. Great fun for a group of friends or single individuals. Thank you so much! I had a great time

Suzanne Wilson Jan 2021

Spoon Carving Workshop

Great fun. Teacher was helpful. Fabulous to be able to continue and make more spoons at home. Great to have the tool kit to do that, except the axe. Only thing is that it cost me more because I couldn’t find a willing friend to come with me, that’s sad. I’m glad I went anyway but should have cost the same. Maybe discount friends if they are going to share a toolkit? Just a suggestion. Loved it! Inspired.
