About the Event

The following activity assumes that you are a Qualified Forest School Leader or equivalent and are competent at whittling. This activity is undertaken at you own risk.

During this event Chris will be teaching us how to whittle a small mushroom, suitable to be made into a keyring pendant. If you would like to join in this activity, you will need:

  • Your favourite whittling knife
  • A Laplander type folding saw
  • Wood to whittle - something nice and straight grained, 25 to 30mm in diameter and 30 to 60cm long. Anything deciduous will do but something easy to work like Willow, Sycamore or Birch is good. If it's green all the better, easier to work. Look out for Birch and Ash that have been felled on your walks and snag a piece.
  • If you have them, small screw in key rings.
