Demonstrations & Courses


I am available for demonstrations on both green woodworking and blacksmithing.


I demonstrate with the local West Midlands APT Group throughout the year and I will be adding more locations and dates this year (check my Facebook or Instagram accounts for details).


If you are interested in having me demonstrate traditional heritage skills or would like to learn basic green woodworking them please contact me on:






I just wanted to thank you for delivering an interesting, informative, and ultimately very enjoyable day learning the basics of the craft of spoon carving at the Headless Cross Community Orchard.


I found the day to be relaxed and fun, and felt totally safe when using the extremely sharp tools on the day, thanks to the expert tuition and guidance. The group I was learning with were very pleasant, and ranged from novices like myself through to people with a passing interest in carving. The volunteers supporting the event were top notch, and the supplied refreshments first class!


I felt a true sense of achievement with creating my very own spoon, plus learning new techniques for carving, as well as gaining valuable knowledge of both green wood and the environmental benefits of using sustainable sourced materials.


I can't thank you enough for being so welcoming, relaxed, informative, and having such a wealth of knowledge that made my participation a lovely experience.


Thank you - RL
