DUNDEE DESIGN MONTH MAKE YOUR OWN MAN PIN WORKSHOPS
Come and make your own wooden Man Pin with Man Pin makers Islay Spalding and Louise Forbes!
We love to make Man Pins from old pieces of wood and have recently been making from a wooden golf club, a rowing boat, a sugar coated red wine cask, a whisky dipstick, a charred whisky cask and various instruments including a guitar, drumsticks and bagpipes! We can make Man Pins from anything wooden and it is our passion to give new life to old wood.
Bring your own wood and we will help you design and make it into a Man Pin you can wear on your lapel or your kilt. If you don’t have any wood but still want to make a Man Pin then we have wood here in the workshop you can buy from us. If a Man Pin is not quite up your street but you have wood, then we can help you turn it into cufflinks or a tie clip instead.
The two hour session will include use of a bandsaw and sanding belt as well as hand tools. Participants must be 14 years or older. There are four spaces in each session but if you are a group of 5 or 6 then please contact us directly and we may be able to arrange a session.
