CHILDREN’S WORKSHOP: Making Wooden Propeller Flyers
Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 August, 10:30am – 12:30pm, £35 Bookings
Make a hand powered vintage propeller toy with their inventor, Wiltshire woodsman Dom Parish. Modelled after the natural flying capacities of sycamore seeds, the propeller or ‘spinstar’ appeals in a tangible way to the child in all of us.
Learn how to steam bend wooden components into a blade, assemble them to a wooden shaft, colour them with lacquer and brand them with your own design.
At the end the course we will all perfect our flying techniques in front of the barn.
Suitable for age 8 years upwards. Limited to 8 spaces so please book early!
