Enjoy learning green woodworking skills whilst making a book mark with Huw from Ynys Twca in the beautiful setting at Ffarm Moelyci, where you can also meet the resident herd of donkeys.

 

Course date: Sunday 21st April 1 - 3pm

 

This 2 hour session for adults (and 15 - 17 years olds if accompanied by a paying adult) is a great introduction to green woodworking for those with no or very little experience. All equipment is provided and if you decide to take it up as a hobby, Huw can advise you on the tools you'll need to carry on.

 

What you'll learn:

A variety of traditional greenwood working techniques.

Safe use of shave horses, lap shaves and draw knives.

Burnishing and decorating techniques.

 

Not only will you learn all about green woodworking, you'll also take home what you make on the course. This course will involve making a Book Mark as part ot the 'Celebrating Books' event being held at Snowdonia Donkeys that day.

 

The wooded area where the course will be based is adjacent to Snowdonia Donkeys, a charity which works to help change the lives of both people and donkeys. So it is highly likely that the soundtrack to the session will not only be birds singing but donkeys braying! The sanctuary will be open to the public between 11 - 3pm, so come along before the course starts to meet the donkeys and join in the book event. Bring a packed lunch and make a day of it!

 

The course is limited to 6 attendees to ensure everyone gets the most from the session. Although the course is aimed at 18 years+, over 15 years olds are welcome to attend if they are accompanied by a paying adult.

Please note: a minimum of 4 bookings is required in order for the session to go ahead. If the minimum number is not reached, the session will be rescheduled to a later date.

 

After you have booked your place on the course, you will receive a confirmation email and a link to a file with information about how to get to Ffarm Moelyci and what to do when you arrive. This file is accessible for 30 days. Please do contact us in the meantime if you have any questions.
