NEW LEARNING OPPORTUNITY LOCALLY



New Free Adult Learning opportunity starting in Ellon. Give us a call or just come along to find out more

SUNDAY WHITTLING – 4 NOV 2018 AT HADDO

Come and join us for a relaxing afternoon of whittling in the woods…


We will have a fire to sit around and a tarpaulin should it be raining. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate will be provided to keep us warm and you are welcome to take food to cook over the fire whilst you whittle. The ranger will teach us how to sharpen our knives (please take your own knife if you have one) and show us some of his projects. He will guide you through how to get started and show you little tips on how to get the best from your work. If you have a specific project in mind you may want to take your own piece of wood. You are welcome to scavenge for wood as there is a lot of it at Haddo, but if you want to do a staff or something of a particular shape then it’s best to take a suitable piece of wood.

We have a limited supply of sheath knives and folding saws – please let us know in advance if you would like to use any of these.

Everyone is welcome, although we would ask that children are accompanied (and supervised) by an adult.

Please email vsohaddo@gmail.com to book. The session is £5 per person including hot drinks and a biscuit.

Sunday from 14:00-16:00
