Wood Workshop

« Let your fingers feel the wood »

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 figurine with the smell of freshly cut hazel branches!

Tuesday 10 and 17 October 2017 from 10AM to 12AM or from 2PM to 4PM

Workshop leader: Claude Veuillet, wood conservator and restorer
