This time it's a week long course to make your own Carving Tool kit! :Wow: This course combines my knife and axe making courses, with a little extra thrown in. As always the course is run in my Woodland Workshop in the heart of Devon, about 10 miles west of Exeter and you are welcome to camp there during your visit. Everything bar the sharpening will be done using hand tools only and the forgework will be using my old forges with bellows or hand cranked blowers. Dates: 5th-9th September (really soon!) Location: Cheriton Bishop, nr Exeter Price: £500 all materials included Here's how it will play out: Day 1: Forge and heat treat a knife blade. This will be made from spring steel and made in the traditional way: fire and hammers!!! Day 2: Forge and heat treat an axe head. This could be a small hatchet, hawk or adze for carving Day 3: Start making handles for the blade and axe. Mostly the wood will come from my trees but all is locally sourced. Day 4: Finish the handles and sharpen you new tools up Day 5: ???? This will depend on what you lot want to do as we get to that point. It could be more tool making (crooked knife,gouges, drawknife, another blade/head), or it could be some green woodwork (spoon carving for example), or it could be some leather work to clothe your new tools. We'll make a group decision as the week goes on and all work on similar projects So that's 5 days of fun filled woodland based makings for just £500. Here are some piccies to whet your apatite... Knife making: Axe making: Sheath Making: Thanks for looking folks and please get in touch ASAP if you would like to bag one of the last couple of spaces!
