Family whittling workshop | For 9-18yrs

Learn safe whittling skills

Learn safe whittling skills and explore the woods at Abney Park Cemetery. This workshop is for children and young people with an accompanying adult to learn whittling together. Using locally grown green wood we’ll practice safe carving knife grips and make staffs, spatulas and spurtles, wands or wooden knifes. For families that want to start whittling at home, this is great introduction for both adults and children to learn how to work safely with knives. We recommend that parents join this course so that they can keep their child safe when whittling at home and be confident in their child’s abilities to work with knives and wood.
