Fancy something a little less plastic this year? How about making your gifts from wood in the forest by hand?. You will learn how to select the right wood, safe use of tools and how to finish your items.
On this one day festive course in the woods you will get to make 3 Christmas bird baubles from Wooden Toms very own templates and then a chance to design and create your very own feathered delights. We will be using Swedish carving knives to shape locally sourced Scottish timber into your birds, paint them and add a hanging cord. You will be doing this all in a beautiful forest warmed by the fire and mulled apple juice.
