Sharpening Club

On Wednesdays 6pm - 9pm. New sessions announced all the time. Register your interest by clicking on the book now button and we'll give you early bird notice.

Bring your chisels, bring your planes, bring your stones. Or learn how to sharpen on our tools. For all those makers, masters of woodcraft and creators of sawdust, that know that their tools have been neglected for far too long and need a bit of a tickle. We’ve got grinders, a couple of tormeks, Japanese water stones and some scary stuff.

Gather, chat, sharpen, chat.

In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.

The course is great, I finally have a frame for my squashed newt and I made it myself!
