Cabin Doors to Manual: How and why you should operate your camera on modes other than “P” and “Auto” – a hands-on introduction to Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO numbers for the photographically challenged.
Greenwood carving, based around knife skills. It’s beyond the scope of a 60 minute long session to teach anyone to carve a spoon, but I’m confident I can teach the basics of how to use a knife in this time. Types of blade, the main grips and how not to cut yourself.
Knife sharpening: The Scary Sharp System – using abrasive paper and flat boards to sharpen and then strop simple blades.
Campfire building and lighting 101. Although if we’re indoors, probably best to leave this for some other time…
