What is Green Woodworking?
Green woodworking is a form of woodcraft that works unseasoned or “green” timber into finished items using handtools. It’s a lovely chance to work with the natural materials that we find in the park and York’s open spaces.
What will we do?
The group will be introduced to tools such as knives, hand drills, billhooks and hammers, and then work on a series of mini-projects using materials from local woodland. There will also be an opportunity to work on their own projects.
Who is this for?

Aimed are ideally aimed at age 8+ but we may be able to accommodate those slightly younger – ask us and we will chat. Email

There is a limit on numbers and only a maximum of 12 can be in the group. All sessions run by Christine, our fully trained volunteer Forest School practitioner.
The costs cover resources and any extra goes back into the volunteers work in maintaining and improving Rowntree Park – we are a registered charity.   £42 for the block for members (£7 a session) and £48 for Non-members (£8 a session)
