Diamond Willow Walking/Talking Sticks- Doug Mackie- Workshops 2016

Diamond Willow

Make your own one of a kind Diamond Willow Walking or Talking Stick. Doug and other Menshed volunteers will help you get started but you may have to finish the project on your own time.

You will need to bring your own knife for whittling with. ( I bought a Mora Companion Bushcraft Knife on Amazon for Forest School Practitioner’s training for approx $30. I find it is a good knife.)

Time of the workshop: Friday Morning

Group that this workshop is best suited for: Anyone old enough to hold a knife 🙂
