Cleave, carve and polish the ultimate whisky chalice as part of the 2014 Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. One of the more unusual activities in the packed line-up of over 370 events, the whisky tumbler carving workshop will introduce participants to the art of green wood working and wood carving to create the perfect whisky goblet
The workshops, run by Ged Connell in Dufftown, will run from 2 – 5 May and will introduce participants to traditional woodcarving techniques, practised on a variety of Speyside timbers from birch, cherry, alder, oak and ash.
During the session Ged will also show participants how to use a selection of traditional hand tools and greenwood devices, including carving axes, shaving horses and pole lathes. Once completed, participants will toast their achievements with a dram in their newly made tumblers. Tickets for the all-day workshops cost £60.
