Welsh Stick Chair Courses - 6 Days

Try something more challenging with a Welsh stick chair, a simple but striking form of Windsor chair. You’ll learn how to bend an arm bow from a single piece of steamed ash and how to fashion a comfortable seat from a plank of elm or beech using an adze and travisher. After five days you’ll come away with a beautiful piece that will last for generations.

Guided birdwatching mini-break

This two night break includes two guided bird walks (each of about two hours in length) and yurt or cabin accommodation. Walks are pitched at beginners but enthusiasts are also welcome. By the end of the stay you should be able to identify a range of woodland and garden birds and may have spotted some of our rarer visitors such as pied and spotted flycatchers, redstarts, dippers and long eared owls.

Silver Smithing Courses

What could be more romantic than spending a weekend in a luxurious yurt or treetop cabin nestled on the edge of an ancient woodland and coming home with your very own handmade wedding rings? I run private wedding ring-making workshops at Redwood Valley on the beautiful Welsh borders. We work together to design unique silver or gold rings which couples go on to make over a two-day period. Please contact me for further details.
