Womens Wood Crafting Courses


We are delighted to be able to offer more  wood crafting sessions to all you wonderful women out there. Come and join us to create and make something from wood. We will breakdown and use pallets and give them a new lease of life.  Most of our craft ideas come with a rustic edge!

During this session you will have the opportunity to work with tools,  drills, saws, whittling knives and sanders

Fun relaxed sessions with forest school leaders and wood crafters Emma Wiles and Ansie Newman at the Secret Garden, Fishbourne. Emma runs her own reclaiming and recycling business ” finny’s sweet salvage” making beautiful things out of reclaimed wood.. An opportunity to learn and  master your wood craft skills.

The woodcraft sessions have been fantastic. Having never used tools before I was a little bit nervous and I learned so any new skills. Emma is a wonderful teacher and the sessions weren’t just useful they were actively fun. I cant wait for the next course.”
