Heritage FREE Wood Carving Event

Neil Foulkes will undertake a wood carving demonstration using old style tools with unseasoned green wood.
In his own words “I was planning to show how I make my wooden spoons. This would include selecting suitable green (unseasoned) branch wood, splitting it, rough shaping it using an axe and drawknife (on a shaving horse), sawing it to shape using a homemade hand saw, then carving it with traditional carving knives and hooks.
I will also bring along a few other unusual woodcraft tools such as rounding planes and tine cutters and any youngsters (and oldsters) can have a go at making teeth for a wooden rake.” Refreshments be served…
