Wood Workshop

« Let's get carving »

With a bit of wood and a knife, let’s get to work!

Sitting on a block of wood in front of the fire in the great fireplace, participants will each have their own knife.

Accompanied by Claude Veuillet, our woodwork specialist, they will learn how to use this ancient tool and have the pleasure of whittling away to carve a wooden spatula with the smell of freshly cut hazel branches!


Thursday 17 and 24 October 2019, from 10AM to 12:00AM or from 2PM to 4PM

Both afternoon workshops are FULL.

Workshop leader: Claude Veuillet, wood conservator and restorer

Minimum 5 children per Workshop / Maximum 10 children per workshop
