Due to the current restrictions we are unable to run any courses. Once restrictions are lifted we will be able to re-start the courses.
Dorset Coppice Group runs a series of courses each year on topics related to coppicing and coppice crafts. These are open to both members & non-members alike, although members receive a 20% discount. The courses are run by experienced members who are skilled in the topic that they are teaching. Unless otherwise stated, all tools & materials will be provided along with refreshments. Please bring your own packed lunch.
Below are two examples of courses that took place in 2019:
Insight into Hedgelaying
