Spend the weekend learning the basic skills of white coopering under the expert instruction of David Harriman.

Use several traditional tools and learn the techniques to craft your own small bucket. After the workshop you will not only take home your bucket, but also the knowledge of how to make your own wooden vessels.

Meet your tutor

David Harriman learnt the basics of wood-working through high school Manual Arts, a 12 month pre-vocational TAFE Course and by completing three years of a carpentry/joinery apprenticeship. Upon this foundation he has developed his own unique style. David has achieved a number of awards in wood working competitions, including first prize at the Toowoomba Show, and has been working in his own wood crafting business for 30+ years. 

All our Hands-on Workshops have a limited number of participants to ensure you receive all the assistance and direction you require.

Spectators are welcome at all workshops.
