Deer antler workshop
Make something unique for yourself or as a gift!
Deer antler is excellent craft material and renewing natural recourse!
We welcome you to visit our handicraft workshop to explore the versatile use of deer antlers as a material. With the help of a teacher you will be able to make your very own unique accessory or souvenir. We provide wide selection of tools and materials for the process. To save your valuable time, it’s recommended to prepare your idea searching the web(Pinterest.com for example) using “deer antler crafts” or something similar or mode specific.
200 € hour for group of 10 persons maximum
250 € hour for bigger groups
This way the result will be more as expected. It is not possible to complete a very large project in an hour, but it is possible to refine the finished item to perfection in home conditions. This can also be part of the plan, because if you sand the antler smooth up to 600 grit and then finish it with, for example, car polishing paste, you get a velvety surface with an incredibly beautiful and marbled shine. It is good to use some small power tools (Dremel etc.) to polish the rough brown surface.
Machines might be a bit dangerous and unfamiliar with these tools people we will teach and help if necessary. We provide also safety glasses, masks and aprons to prevent your clothes from fine dust. We have hand saws, band saw, column drill, sander, polishing discs and other necessary items available.
Some handicraft ideas:
- wrist accessory

Attention! Picking up antlers from the territory of Wildlife Park is not allowed.
This handicraft workshop is meant for groups starting from 10 people. Ask for an offer for larger groups.
