| £25
Pole-lathe-harehope-may-2015-(6)

Learn the basics of turning freshly cut green wood on the leg powered pole lathe. You’ll find out how to work with wood still green and fresh from the tree; you’ll split it, shape it on a shave horse and then turn it on a traditional pole lathe. This is how chairs, stools, bowls, rolling pins and a host of other household objects used to be made.

Booking essential. £25 per person
