A wonderful day at our workshop.
Spend the day with your child or grandchild making your own Oak & Rope garden swing.
We teach you how to prepare and treat the wood and spleise the rope.
Rope work is something I learnt from my own Grandfather when I was 10 years old. I never forgot it and when I needed a present for a friend 25 years later I made my first oak swing...
This was the beginning of The Oak & Rope Company
You can look around our workshop and watch me tell the story here...
Our workshop is just outside Canterbury (an hours train journey from London).
Spend the day in our workshop, learn a traditional skill and enjoy creating something together. You will have an heirloom to take home. This is how memories are made!
Lunch is included from The Independent Pedaler Cafe next door to our workshop. (www.theindependentpedaler.co.uk)
Suitable for children from 10 years old (that is when I learnt it) however you know your child best.
An engraving can be added to the swing by one of our master carvers for an additional cost of £60. You will be making one of our medium size swings (https://theoakandropecompany.co.uk/shop/product/73/medium-swing)
The date of your experience can be determined at a later date. Available between January and October, Monday to Saturday (however on a Saturday you will not see the workshop in full operational mode).
Voucher valid for 12 months.
If you want to bring more than one child or make more than one swing, please contact us to discuss.
