Duration - 1 / 2 days  There are many hand tools you can use in an outdoor setting, and all of them have their own uses and risks.  The only way to be really competent to demonstrate and support other people  to use tools, is to get used them yourself!  We want you to feel confident to use a wide variety of hand tools with other people of all ages.   If you are looking to work with very small people you may not wish to attend the second training day - although very small people can be trusted with knives and axes too!  You just need to know how to ensure they stay safe.
