Gavin Phillips teaches and popularizes green woodworking. He loves to share how to whittle, carve and turn fresh-felled wood using amazingly effective but simple and satisfying techniques with pole-lathe, axe, knife and froe. Gavin believes such simple human-powered handcraft is good both for an individual and for society, so he runs a monthly taster session (presently) at no charge, with all tools and materials provided. From whittling a wooden butter-spreader to turning bowls on the foot-powered lathe or hand-forging simple tools, Gavin can get you started. He offers courses, tuition, demonstrations of green woodworking and some specialist tools. Since folk generally come out of his sheds happier than when they went in, he calls these activities shed-therapy. It is cheaper than other forms of therapy, plus you have some tangible thing to show for your time. Clare Phillips is a former primary school teacher, social worker and now training manager. She carves nice spoons.
