Understanding Axes Workshop

'Outside of fire, little else can contribute more to living comfortably in the wilderness than knowing how to properly use a well - chosen axe.' (Mors Kochanski author of 'Bushcraft - Outdoor skills and wilderness survival')
This two hour workshop will introduce customers to a range of different axes and their unique features allowing them to perform certain tasks more effectively.
The primary emphasis of this interactive workshop is the safe use of the axe. We hope to impart in the beginner a confidence to use this North Woods tool effectively and safely for a range of bushcraft tasks and projects.
We will cover the legal framework for carrying an axe and points to consider when choosing an axe to buy. We will also cover the safe use of an axe for a variety of small carving project for you to take away.
Please feel free to bring your own axe(s), alternatively you can use one of ours for the duration of the workshop.
If you are thinking of buying an axe this workshop allows you the opportunity to 'test drive' the popular Small Forest axe and the Wildlife Hatchet (plus the Outdoor axe and Small Splitting axe) both in the Gransfors Bruks range. These axes and many more are available to buy from the World of Bushcraft where this workshop takes place. 
All ages are welcome. Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.
Teas and coffees are provided throughout. 
Session starts at 2pm.
