Discover age old traditional carving techniques

Learn to use traditional hand tools and carve a spoon out of green wood, while sat around the camp fire at the Steep Ravine's hidden Base Camp.

Our new outdoor session is perfect for anyone looking to master outdoor skills, offering an introduction to Green Woodworking. During the three hour session, you will learn a variety of techniques using a saw, axe and knife and, with the guidance of our instructor, will have carved a wooden spoon by the end of the session.

A great way to get outside regardless of the weather, the camp fire and woodland setting gives you a chance to escape to the forest, mastering carving techniques and enjoy the tranquility of Bluestone's ancient pines.
