ABOUT THE COURSE
Combining meditation and an introduction to basic whittling techniques, this workshop will give you the time and space to get away from a hectic everyday life and connect with nature. You will be guided to fully engage your senses in the relaxing skill of wood carving. In the morning you will immerse yourself in learning the skill of whittling and carve your own butter knife to take home with you. Following a warming campfire cooked lunch, you will visit one of our yurts for a meditation session incorporating woodland folklore. The day is designed to leave you with a feeling of peace and calm, that whittling and time spent in nature can bring.
