Everyone who attends learns how to straighten a stick, make a "proper" traditional peg joint to fix the handle to the shank and use simple tools to work the handle and shank to a finished stage. No power tools are used by students - all sawing and drilling is
done before the class. There is a choice of different handle types in wood and antler to use.
All materials and tools are provided on the day.
Cost per person is £175.00 for the full day 9am to 4pm. Class limited to 3 people. Classes are run on a Sunday, first Sunday in October to last Sunday in March. Please contact Stuart for venues and dates either by email or mobile
This course is for people aged 18 and over (due to insurance requirements).
