Wood Workshop: Log to Tumbler

Make a whisky tumbler in this woodworking class.

7 hours Class size 2 to 6     label £79
Learn how to make wood art straight from a freshly felled log. In this woodworking class, you will make a wooden tumbler whilst learning some woodworking basics.
We all know whisky is matured in wood, so why not drink it from wood too! This woodworking project is a great way for beginners to pick up some useful techniques like wood carving and how to use basic tools like shaving horses and pole lathes. You'll learn all about health and safety so you can handle all tools with care.
There will be a quick break for lunch and plenty of breaks, with tea and coffee provided. We recommend you arrive about thirty minutes before the class starts to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Not only will you come away with your unique tumbler/s, but you'll also have loads of inspiration to get started on even more woodcraft ideas at home.

Your teacher

Ged has been a Countryside ranger for Moray Council for 20 years. He studied forestry at Bangor University and not surprisingly he enjoys being outdoors with nature. Ged first got into green woodworking by renovating his house and garden. He built his own bespoke kitchen from wood and taught himself as he went. He enjoyed it so much he decided he'd like to teach others how to craft beautiful items from natural resources.
So what is greenwood? Ged takes freshly cut, unseasoned timber – the likes of which can end up on our winter open fires – and converts this timber into unique, functional products. To do this he uses traditional methods and tools, harking back to bye-gone days before highly mechanised machinery, for truly handcrafted and individual items.
He's a very calm and encouraging teacher and is interested in conservation, environmental issues, yoga and northern soul!
