Transform the inner metal from a car wheel, washing machine, tumble drier or even an old gas canister into a completely unique fire pit or barbecue. Your experience host will first show you how to safely work with a variety of hand and power tools, including angle grinders, which you’ll use to make your garden creation. Scott will guide you through the process of creating your upcycled piece, sharing his many years of experience upcycling from all sorts of recycled materials.
At the end of the day you'll leave with your own custom fire pit or barbecue, along with the skills to make more upcycled metal creations at home.

Scott Is a great teacher and I really enjoyed the Day and I'm very pleased with my finished firepit/barbecue. Thanks Scott. Thanks also has to go to Sue who made a lovely cake to go with our Tea break.
My friend and I had such a fantastic day doing the upcycled firepit project. Scott was a great teacher, and the vibe and company throughout the whole day was really wonderful. I gained so much confidence in using tools, as well as understanding how some of the sourcing of materials works. Thoroughly recommend and am definitely going to look at what other courses I can do with Black Paw :)
This was a gift for my partner, who had a great time doing this yesterday. Very pleased with the chance to the learn metal working techniques and create something to bring home.
The reuse mindset is great. The host was a good teacher he observed , guided and supported when needed but let you learn safely. Pleased with the outcome. Great hospitality and camaraderie with other group members. Thank you really impressed.
Really enjoyable and informative. I was slightly apprehensive but Scott was a really good instructor.
Everyone will need to confirm fitness each day. Everyone will have their temperature taken at the beginning of each day. Hand washing will be compulsory at set times during the courses. Face masks will be compulsory during the specific parts of the course where you will be breathing heavily due to exertion. The remainder of the course we will have face shields available as an option to facemasks. Face shields will be provided. But please bring your own face mask.
You don't need any previous woodwork experience, just some enthusiasm! Please wear old clothes (or something that you don’t mind getting damaged or torn) and sensible, closed toe footwear. Work boots are recommended. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day, but please bring along your own packed lunch.
Course Location courses can be either in Glastonbury or at Scott's own workshop near the Bath and West show grounds (BA46QN) and will be confirmed.
Max is the inspiration behind "Black Paw". He takes an active interest in all Black Paw experiences and can usually be found at lunchtimes, or indeed when any food is available to share.
Scott is Black Paw’s founder. After years of upcycling, he still loves to share his craft and has taught many people to upcycle safely in a number of different workshop experiences. Scott's aim is always that his guests not only leave with a finished creation, but also the knowledge to upcycle long after their experience is over.
Sue has 30 years of experience as a teacher as well as a passion for upcycling.
She particularly loves working with fabrics, interior design and can share lots of ideas for anyone wanting to make garden accessories.
