This is a one day introductory course to learn all the basics of using freshly cut (green) timber. You won't have time to make a chair - but you will learn the techniques used by the 'bodgers' of yesteryear.

The course is held in our purpose-built outdoor workshop (in good weather - otherwise indoors), in Buninyong (near Ballarat) Victoria.

This is a one day (10.00am to 4.00pm) course.

Please bring a packed lunch (or collect something from the local bakery or cafes).

Refreshments (tea, coffee etc) provided.
