Bush Handtool Woodwork [FULLY BOOKED]
May 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$40 – $60
Have you ever used a drawknife, froe, or spokeshave? Work with and learn from craftsman Bruce Teakle in a day of hand tool woodwork using local timber. Set in a beautiful rainforest workshop, you will return home with new skills and knowledge of the tree and its timber. Learn within a philosophy of appreciation of design and nature. Work towards (and likely finish) a project such as a bench hook, cutting board, spoon or one-piece stool. Numbers are limited to 6 per day. Adults $60. Students $40. If you like Roy Underhill

The workshop involves working with sharp tools which need to be handled carefully. Please bring something to share for a group lunch. You will work with basic but good timber, additional timber available at small charge (below cost).
