WHAT IS STEAM BENDING?
Steam Bending is a term used to describe heating wood until it is pliable and may be bent into new shapes.

The workshop runs a year-round programme of woodwork courses from the forest-based studio in Cumbria including Beginners, 3 Day Pro and Makers Sessions & gift vouchers.

We also offer gift vouchers for our online live Lamp making workshops.

Charlie is the "Paul Hollywood of Steam Bending". This was an amazing class. It was really well prepared and fun. Charlie is a great teacher, very personable, encouraging and fund to be around. We never thought we'd make something as good as we did - and in our own kitchen to boot!

I would highly recommend any workshops provided by the Charlie Whinney Studio.
