Event details

Make a beautiful and useful split-handle rake using traditional woodworking tools and coppiced ash from Bradfield Woods. With David Wheeler, local craftsman and furniture maker

Bradfield Woods open air workshop offers protection from the rain and a fireplace should it be chilly! All wood, tools and expertise will be supplied on the day. All you need is warm clothing, strong footwear and a packed lunch. There will be a small charge of £10 per person on the day towards materials. Tea, coffee and biscuits included in the price.

Inspired by rake makers such as the late Trevor Austen from Kent and craftsmen who had worked at the Little Whelnetham Rake Factory, David began making rakes in 2002, using wood grown in East Anglia. As an experienced furniture designer and maker and lecturer in furniture studies, David has combined his skills to run green wood courses for small groups.
