Make that day extra special by carving a traditional Scottish whisky quaich for your wedding. As this is a private course you will be able to tailor your whisky quaich to exactly how you like it, such as the type of wood you use and carving the bride and grooms’ initials into the handles.

Starting with the carving axe you will move through the tools onto the gouge and finally the carving knife. This is a great course that is very rewarding and you get to walk away with a beautiful wooden quaich at the end.
