Make your own porridge bowl

8 in stock



Prep for Autumn by making your very own porridge bowl. You will get to design your own porridge bowl to fit your needs. We start with quite a big piece of wood so prepare to get a workout!  We will spend the first part of the day axing out your shape and then go onto hollowing it after lunch. With expert tuition from Wooden Tom, you will be guided to safely use the axe and gouge to create your own bowl to take home.

This is one of the more physical courses due to the large piece of wood we start with so to get the most out of it, it is recommended either you have some degree of arm strength or you just have bags of enthusiasm!
