ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Isn’t nature great? Walking through the woods, talking to some friends, staring at the trees. Or going out solo, and hearing yourself think for once. But every hiker needs a companion, whether it’s a friend, a spirit animal (mine’s the weasel), or better yet, a big ol’ stick. That’s right, traverse treacherous terrain with a help from nature itself. In this class we will build a walking stick using hand tools and the power of you. Each stick will be unique due to the very essence of handwork. You will learn to: “read the grain” of wood, hand plane, learn about jigs and more! All while making your own walking stick! This is a beginner level class so no experience necessary! In partnership with Outlandish Hiking – Take your stick out walking with a hike out of the city!   Refund Policy: 24 hour minimum notice for full refund  

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

  • Hand Plane
  • Grain Readings
