Whittling for educators is the perfect opportunity for teachers and teaching assistants of all settings, to upskill their tool-use and knife work in particular.
Passing over the trust and responsibility to facilitate whittling with learners has numerous benefits which are transferable to other areas of learning; confidence, resilience, promoting creative minds, mindfulness and self-regulation, reflectiveness….the list goes on.
Drawing from experience of running Forest School sessions for a diverse range of learners across all ages, this course will give insight into achievable projects, utilising safe use of a range of hand-tools. Run by our resident craftsperson and expert Spoon-carver Nick Murphy, supported by our Head Trainer Neil Martin, this is a day not to be missed out upon.
