I have a group knifemaking course scheduled for this weekend and I think there is something going around as 3 people have dropped out due to illness! So it's on the verge of not running
So that the few still well enough to attend have some company I am offering the remaining places at a discounted price. It's a 3 day knife and sheath making course using my Primitive forges, normally the price for this course is £280 but the remaining places are on offer for £200 basically you get a free Sheath Making day! There are 3 places up for grabs, first come first served.
An idea of what is planned for the course can be found here on my website.
An example of what can be made over the 3 days
We will be using a reproduction of an itinerant Iron Age forge and a Roman/Saxon style forge, along with only hand tools to make a fixed blade knife (spring steel blade, hardwood handle) and a leather sheath (wet formed veg tan),followed by sharpening with waterstones.
If you are interested in coming along please let me know ASAP. The course runs from saturday morning through to monday tea time, all materials are included and I shall have refreshments on tap. You are of course welcome to camp in my woods while you are there I'm just west of Exeter for those that don't know
