Become your own Axe Maiden and Warrior

  • Lower Vert Woods, East Sussex Lower Vert Woods, near Laughton BN8 6BP United Kingdom (map)

Fancy learning the ancient tradition of chopping wood?

In a day we will turn you into the Axe Maiden and Axe Warrior that lurks within us all and allow you to successfully split any kind of wood or kindling.

This is a fun day that includes Axe Yoga, choosing the right axe, getting your chopping stance right, and lots of practice on wood that can be split from hand axes to big logs that need a hefty 'splitter' axe.

Our tutors - Stewart Boyle and Christine Meadows - have been chopping wood for many decades and will impart the how, the why and the when of becoming an Axe Warrior and Maiden in easy stages, with lots of 'hands on' practice and one-to-one teaching.

We'll also give you advice on buying your own axe and a few tricks of the trade to impress your friends.

The day will be spent in the beautiful Lower Vert Woods, just 15 minutes from Lewes in East Sussex.

Book today and bring a friend for 10% off by quoting a discount code we will send you.

Twack! Come and chop wood with us today.
