What a successful course...

Our latest Green Woodworking Course was filled with spring sunshine.


What is Green Woodworking? is simply working with wood that is green or 'unseasoned'.


What we mean by 'green' is wood that has been freshly felled, maybe only days or a few weeks ago and is still very wet.
