Green Woodworking

Making a bowl

Abney's green woodworkers aim to introduce people to a rewarding and therapeutic activity, connected to a long tradition of craft. Working outside and using wood felled locally and in the cemetery, they bring heritage crafts into the heart of the city and make basic woodcraft skills available to all.

At their outdoor workshops people of all levels of experience make crafts alongside one another using hand tools and green wood straight from the log.

They teach families and adults through one day and longer term courses. Members of London Green Wood can make use of the workshop every week with tools and wood provided, to join the workshop sign up for an Introduction to Green Woodwork course which will give you all the skills you need to return to use the workshop.

For more information see their website.
