Gain some confidence using hand tools and lose yourself in the beauty of timber through custom making your own wooden cheeseboard. A great chance to shape and craft a piece of beautiful timber into something that you can serve delicious treats on. Your cheeseboard will improve with age and develop a rich patina bringing a feeling of natural warmth to your table.
Wooden utensils designed for serving and cooking are referred to as Treen. The term means literally “of a tree” and includes wooden spoons, knives, plates, bowls and cheeseboards. Learning to make your own is incredibly satisfying and creative. You don’t need to have any woodworking experience to join our classes, just a desire to give it a try and go where the wood takes you.
