First few weeks back and straight into projects of their choosing.
Amazingly intricate knife work and so safe: our first skulk of foxes – huge well done!
Others are working together to create a hazel arbor, using clove hitches and lashings to join rods together.
Amelia brought in a machine to show us, “It’s a rock tumbler: it smooths and cleans. It takes two days to fully polish.”
Alex: Today I started to whittle. I started to make a dome shape, which is a bevel cut.
Yasmine: I accidently cut the head off my fox. I felt disappointed and like giving up but then decided to turn it into a pencil. I sharpened it a bit and coloured it. I am pleased.
Ronne: We’ve been making an arbor. We gathered materials, measured and sawed the hazel. Once we figured out the order we started to lash the rods together.
