We had a full course this weekend of "repeat offenders" as we like to call those folks that have come back to hone up on their making skills. Now that they have all had a taste of making rustic stools and chairs they wanted to make their own shave horses. This allows them to make at home. Some great skills as usual by the crew. Spreading the word further afield form Aberdeenshire to Yorkshire ... the world is getter smaller !!!!
This is going to be a making experience of your lifetime !!
Our extra special, one-off, once in lifetime course for 2014 is being held in partnership with Knoydart Forest Trust. Based for four days in a truly remote part of Scotland - The Knoydart Peninsula.
Working in the most beautiful part of Scotland, this is an amazing opportunity to experience all the elements of resources and making in the wilds.
This adventure into making would suit the hardy folks amongst you. If you know the West Coast of Scotland you will know what we're talking about. However if you have never been to Knoydart - well - this is your chance to really feel the special nature of the place. The weather will be great in October, the midges will be gone by then, the scenery will be stunning, sunsets will be unforgettable and the trees will be looking great.
The costs are all inclusive of boat fare, accommodation, breakfasts, lunches, tuition, materials, tool use and great company. We leave you the option of finding an evening meal or cooking it yourself. You will have to bring some food in with you and cash for the occasional beer at night !
