Nailsworth Community Workshop provides affordable craft courses for the whole community. We run weekly courses in wood, silver, stained glass and mosaic. We also have weekend bow making courses. We have  recently begun a Production Workshop making products to sell.

Our aim is to promote confidence and self-belief whilst developing practical skills. The groups are small and are taught by skilled, professional craftsmen in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. We are a not-for-profit company called Practical Intelligence based in the Nailsworth Subscription Rooms.

Bow making in Nailsworth

We offer the opportunity to make a longbow in a weekend. We start on a Friday evening by laminating three woods together – usually hickory, lemon wood and purple heart. Over the next two days we tiller the bow and making a string. All bows have horn knocks. If you are over 6 foot please let us know when you book your place.

Knife making weekends

Our knife making weekend starts 7-9 on the Friday then all day Saturday and Sunday and you will make a beautiful knife and sheath ready to take away with you.

You will work to your chosen design to create a blade out of high-carbon steel. You will learn how to harden and temper the steel in order to achieve an excellent cutting edge. The handles will be made of variety of woods, to meet your aesthetic sense and to fit your hand. Finally we will  make sheaths by moulding veg-tanned leather.
