Organizing Your

Knife Craft Workshop

                                                                                             

The Knife Craft Workshop is best suited to one or two days, though we are able to present a Primer version of the workshop in four hours. It is also possible to include these skills in a Multi-day Backcountry Adventure. As a backcountry adventure, the workshop becomes more experiential as we use the skills for practical purposes in camp.

Hosting and organizing a workshop is easy.  If you are interested in a workshop for your group or organization, please visit our Hosting a Workshop page.

Since each workshop is individually designed for your organization or group, the rate for the workshop is based on various factors, which we discuss in the design process.
