Courses

Throughout the year, we run a series of courses relating to the subjects of coppicing, green woodworking & sustainable woodland management. Past courses include: hurdle making, spar making, hedgelaying, continuous woven fencing, charcoal making, hedgelaying and spoon carving.

Unless otherwise detailed, these courses will be run at our off-grid ‘Living Classroom’ in the woodlands above Blandford Forum, Dorset.

Keep an eye on this page, as courses will be detailed here as and when they are available.
