Learn traditional green woodworking skills in a peaceful Cornish setting

If your idea of a great weekend involves getting away from it all, eating great food and learning a traditional skill in an idyllic Cornish setting, a Turning Hare Woodcraft course could be just right for you. Courses also make great gifts that really do last a lifetime!

Steve and Bob are neighbours who set up Turning Hare Woodcraft in order to share their passion for green woodworking. With over 20 years experience of teaching woodwork and a breadth of knowledge on green woodworking techniques, Steve is relaxed, calm and patient, and ensures that you’ll have an informative and enjoyable course…whatever your standard. Steve will be ably assisted by Bob, who as a greenwood enthusiast has a flair for creating rustic furniture.

At Turning Hare, we stick to traditional methods and avoid power tools. If someone is struggling with a traditional tool (hand drills for cutting holes for your tenons can sometimes be tricky), we have power tools as a back up; but wherever possible we want you to enjoy the experience of making a totally hand-crafted piece. We keep our group sizes small (no more than 6 people) so that between us we’ll ensure that you have all the personal tuition that you need.


Craft your own Rustic Stool – an Introduction to green woodworking skills.

This hugely enjoyable and satisfying two day course provides a great introduction to traditional ‘green wood working’ skills. You’ll learn all about ancient woodcraft techniques (no power tools here!) and out of a recently felled ‘green’ log you’ll create your own unique rustic stool to take home.

No wood working experience necessary

Spoon carving in green wood

This practical 1 day course is a great introduction to the world of green woodworking. You’ll learn about the make-up of wood and tips for identifying the best materials to use for your woodcraft. You’ll be introduced to the range of traditional tools used in green woodworking and will be given tuition in the ancient skills of crafting beautiful pieces without the need for any power tools.

We’ll give you a log. You turn it into a spoon!
