Learn Scottish woodcarving traditions in the forest at Inshriach, close to Aviemore. Follow in the footsteps of the ancient Highlanders by replicating a 2000-year-old Highlands cup of your own. With expert tuition from Wooden Tom, you will be guided to safely use hand tools such as a knife and axe to create your own Highlands kuksa cup or whisky quaich to take home.

This is one of the more technical and physical courses so to get the most out of it, it is recommended you have done some woodwork before or at least used to working with your hands in other activities. Either that or you just have bags of enthusiasm!  This is a great course to learn many of the grounding skills in one day which are transferable on to other carving projects.

Skills learned:

Using an axe to accurately cleave wood - Correct use of the carving axe to rough out the shape of your item - Safe use and cutting techniques with the carving knife and gouge.

Tools used:

Carving axe - Saw - Carving knife - Gouge - Mallet.

What's included in the price

All tools and materials for the day. You get to go home with your own cup.
