Christmas gift making 21st November


Scandinavian wood craft

Out of stock



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 item.

On this one day festive course you will get to make 3 Christmas birds and 3 shot glasses, hopefully covering all bases as gifts! The birds can be painted and if preferred a hanging string added so they can be hung up from any place around the house including the Christmas tree! The shot glasses can be used just as well as mini cups for those not likely to knock back a line of tequila!
