What is green wood?
The term "green" in woodworking refers to the amount of water that is contained inside the wood therefore freshly cut timber is said to be green. However, this term has dual meaning in green woodworking due firstly to the massive ecological benefits associated with the use of coppiced native woodland but also the human powered, hand tool, off grid nature of the craft.

Why hand tools?
Working wood by hand provides one the opportunity to gain an understanding of how wood can be worked, otherwise disguised by the use of machinery. Working with wood using hand tools provides a noise free environment and almost meditative experience.

This workshop takes place over 3 days, Saturday May 5th 12-6 pm, Saturday May 12th 12-6pm, Sunday May 13th 12-6pm.
Suitable for beginners.
Capacity : 8 participants.

Cost €250 including booking fee.
