Spend the day learning a number of techniques using various sharpening equipment for green woodworking tools such as, axes, billhooks and slashers in the lovely surroundings of Lower Moor Farm nature reserve.

We will cover: what you need to look for when buying tools, types of steel, bevel types, grind types, customising a new tool, maintenance and damage prevention. Including demonstrations by bushcraft expert Steve Corbyn, showing you how to sharpen both convex and flat grind tools.

We encourage you to bring along any tools you wish to work with and Steve can advise you on their use. We will provide sharpening equipment for use on the day.

You will need to wear suitable clothing and footwear for working outdoors. Steel toe cap boots would be advantageous if you have them.

Lunch and refreshments are included. Please inform us of any dietary requirements by emailing [email protected]
