With Rachel Ashcroft

Sun 28 November, 1-5pm – fully booked
Takes place at Cample

The workshop is free and suitable for all abilities
No previous experience of woodworking necessary

Join Rachel for this afternoon woodwork session, using reclaimed and drift woods and some simple carpentry techniques.  Rachel will demonstrate a number of different techniques in relation to surface texture and joinery. Then you will  spend the rest of the session experimenting with the processes in an open-ended way. The outcome might be your own piece of sculpture, or you will have the opportunity to turn your piece into a functional object such as a dried bloom vase or a tea light holder.

Rachel Ashcroft is a woodworker based in Dumfries and Galloway who uses sustainable locally sourced hardwoods to make wooden items ranging from spoons and bowls to shelves and tables. She designs all of her products with a modern aesthetic, taking care to highlight the beauty and quality of the wood used.
