This is a one-day extravaganza of steam-bending and using freshly cut wood
 
You will:
 
Cut some small trees yourself
Have a go with traditional green-woodwork tools, learn about cleaving, use a shave-horse etc.
​Learn about basics of steam-bending, twisting, bending, splitting and we will use a compression strap
Learn about and experment with 'Cleave Bending', a fantastic and fast technique for creating amazing results as the wood is cleaved hot from a log
Talk about design, new objects, and the future of using local green-wood using traditional and new methods
Design something new yourself!  By the end of the day everyone will have had at least one new idea and there will be a litle time at the end to experiment with your designs or make some Charlie Whinney Studio designs to take home.
 
This course is the day after the 'Using Local Wood' course and could to taken as a 2-day course if you also want to learn about the bigger picture and other ways of processing large and small logs into useful pieces of wood.
