For the past three weeks, a group of volunteers from Willowbank have been meeting every Thursday at GalGael in Govan, to build a noticeboard and signs for the garden out of wood.
During the first session, we were introduced to using tools in the workshop. The second session involved practicing carving, and at our third session we began work on the sign itself, carving the words 'Welcome to Willowbank' into a beautiful piece of wood. We also got to use a great tool to burn words into the wood!
One of our volunteers, Michael, has created an amazing design for the noticeboard itself! This is what we're aiming towards...
The workshops are a great opportunity for our volunteers to learn woodworking skills in a relaxed and friendly environment - for free! If you'd like to participate in these work sessions, you can join our Facebook group, or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
