Walking Sticks


A one day class on the basic skills involved in making your own walking sticks. No experience needed but a willingness and ability to use hand tools is essential.


Most of the people who come have never made a stick before, but everyone goes home with a complete stick they have made. Anyone with a bit of stickmaking knowledge who would like to improve and learn some new tricks is also welcome.


Everyone who attends learns how to straighten a stick, make a "proper" traditional peg joint to fix the handle to the shank and use simple tools to work the handle and shank to a finished stage.
