Power Chisel Workshops with Arbortech

Each participant will be able to choose a design for their sign, such as their name or favourite animal, which they will then stick to a piece of wood and use the Power Chisel to create the design. It is then painted and sanded/oiled for them to take home and hang on their bedroom wall! This is an exciting opportunity for the kids to learn how to use a power tool to create practical and or decorative items for the home.

This workshop will be open to young people aged 7+
