Men Who Make


Archive Workshops (27 October to 1 December 2023, 2.00pm - 4.00pm)
This autumn Men Who Make invites you to explore ancient bushcraft techniques and processes including pewter casting, willow weaving and wood whittling. Over a 6 week course you will be introduced to different techniques and processes, using your hands to craft both useful and beautiful items such as carved spoons or woven baskets.

Men Who Make is a programme of free, creative courses for adult men experiencing mental health challenges.

Workshops take place at Walter May House in Whitehawk where there is both an indoor and outdoor workshop space. Where possible, activities will take place outdoors amongst nature so please do wrap up as it can be cold! There is an accessible toilet on site and hot drinks and biscuits will be provided as well as all necessary making materials and tools.

Sessions are free but places are very limited, we ask that you can attend all 6 sessions in this series. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible so we can release your space for someone on the waiting list.
