Next course dates
There will be 2 foundation courses suitable for beginners most months in 2018. If you want to do a course but can’t make any of the available dates please contact me an let me know. If there’s enough requests I’ll put on some extra courses. I’m also planning occasional courses for more advanced spoon carving topics.
Courses in winter, spring and autumn will be held in the yurt at Days Cottage orchard, Brookthorpe (on A416 between Stroud and Gloucester). Full directions provided in the joining instructions I send out a few days before the course. In summer months courses are at workshop at The Woodyard, near Tetbury.

Cost of the course is £70 for the day (sorry I’ve had to increase the price a bit for 2018 so I can pay a bit more towards maintenance of the yurt and other facilities).
Tea, coffee and hot and cold water for drinks will be provided, as will biscuits and cake. Please being a packed lunch and your own flavourings (herbal teas etc) if you prefer.
Starts at 10am – please arrive from 9.30 to settle in and have a cuppa before we start.
