Make a complete twelve spoke wagon wheel over five days in this unique workshop with Wheelwright Kerry Riehl.

You will assemble a complete twelve spoke wagon wheel from a handmade kit provided by our resident wheelwright Kerry Riehl. You will also personally make one of each item used in the construction including a spoke, felloe and hub. At the end of the five day workshop you will have a completed wheel to take home.

This is a very unique opportunity and bookings are limited.

Wheelwright Kerry Riehl is a joiner by trade. He has been making and repairing wooden wheels for over 30 years, starting with his grandparents' old carts and drays. Kerry is passionate about passing on the skills of wheelwrighting.

Cost: $1,400*, includes expert instruction, all materials, morning and afternoon tea and lunch.

*This workshop also allows for partial payments.
