About this Event
Wood whittling for beginners and festive campfire pigs in blankets

Wood whittling can be a fun and safe activity to enjoy by the campfire. Despite the knives involved, with proper safety measures in place, it can be a great way to learn wood carving techniques.

If you're new to whittling, the ECH rangers are offering a beginner-friendly workshop where you can make Christmas stick elves. These little creations are easy to make and can be used to decorate your garden.

While you carve, the rangers will cook pigs in blankets over the fire. If you're a vegetarian, they also have veggie alternatives available on request. It's sure to be a festive and enjoyable session!
