WILD NORTH DISCOVERY TRADITIONAL CRAFT SKILLS
Try your hand (and leg!) at the pole lathe, an ancient technology used for turning green wood. This was how bowls, rolling pins, stools, chairs, in fact every turned wooden object was once made. Courses are on demand and can be run for just two people from a day to a full week.
Alternatively learn the ancient skill of willow basketry - simple yet very satisfying.
