Enjoy a practical day out learning the traditional and ancient art of wood turning on a traditional pole lathe. The pole lathe's origin is lost in antiquity; we know that Vikings used them from the archaeological finds at Jórvík, the Viking settlement discovered beneath the modern city of York in England.

This beginners course will cover the basics of green wood-turning with all tools and materials provided. No previous experience necessary.

The course content will include the selection of materials, tool types, techniques and their safe use to create a finished item (we start by teaching you how to make a wooden babies rattle!) by the end of the day. The emphasis on this course is to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to carry your new found skills forward into a new and rewarding hobby.

Full Day course with light luch and refreshments provided.

Botanical adventures begin within
our hedgerows…

We are based on the beautiful Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall. You can choose from hedgerow walks with stunning sea views, coastal walks that finish on the wonderful Cornish shoreline, woodland walks and even discover what's hidden in the wild urban landscapes of our nearest city, just across the water - Plymouth. We range in price from our popular monthly wild food walks (with a cookery class using the wild produce we've collected at the end also included!) for just £20 an adult and children go free. Bespoke private walks can be arranged at any time (and location of your choosing) - and we also offer exciting packages tailored for honeymooners and corporate team building days etc (please see the relevant pages on this site!). We also run courses in traditional countryside crafts - such as bee keeping, willow weaving and working with wild game.
