Learn traditional green woodworking skills in a peaceful Cornish setting


If your idea of a great weekend involves getting away from it all, eating great food and learning a traditional skill in an idyllic Cornish setting, a Turning Hare Woodcraft course could be just right for you. Courses also make great gifts that really do last a lifetime!

***Dates for 2020 being sorted - in the meantime GIFT VOUCHERS available that are valid for any dates. We’ll be running a course each month from April to October. Please email us if you want to get on the list and be notified when the dates are finalised. Thank you.***

Steve and Bob are neighbours who set up Turning Hare Woodcraft in order to share their passion for green woodworking. With over 20 years experience of teaching woodwork and a breadth of knowledge on green woodworking techniques, Steve is relaxed, calm and patient, and ensures that you’ll have an informative and enjoyable course, whatever your standard. Steve will be ably assisted by Bob, who as a greenwood enthusiast has a flair for creating rustic furniture.

At Turning Hare, we stick to traditional methods and don’t use power tools. We want you to enjoy the experience of making a totally hand-crafted piece. We keep our group sizes small - no more than 6 people, ensuring everyone gets all the personal tuition they need.

Green woodworking techniques have been around for centuries, and old ways are better than new when it comes to peaceful, satisfying woodcraft.
