Jill Day

Jill has a bulging kitbag of practical creative skills including rustic stool and bench making. She has also built quite a lot of sheds in her time. In the past few years she fell into spoon whittling after walking 1400 kms and needing to keep the relationship of body, mind and nature alive and vibrant. She can often be found chasing the sound of a chainsaw, tracking down arborists and rescuing branches in order to give new life to trees. Jill has over 2 decades of experience helping people learn both in and outside schools. She enjoys seeing a spark come to life as people grow skills, and confidence in physical ability. For Jill, it’s exciting to facilitate the journey of discovery to what lies within, the mystery below the surface, both within the heart of the wood and the centre of our own being.
