Come to a celebration of traditional and contemporary woodland crafts - watch experts or have a go yourself! 

As part of National Coppice Week 2019 we'll have demonstrations of traditional woodland crafts such as pole-lathe turning, charcoal making and spoon carving, and the chance for you to have a go at hurdle making using a shave horse, cleaving wood and working with willow.

Wooden products such as local charcoal, woven goods, carvings, spoons, sculptures and milled timber will be available to buy or order.

You can have a go at:

  • Using a shave horse
  • Cleaving
  • Working with willow
  • Hurdle-making

 See demonstrations of:

  • Pole-lathe turning

Free to attend (donations are always welcome!) – just turn up!

Children are welcome but must be supervised all times – some activities will be unsuitable for them.

This event is made possible thanks to The Greensand Country Landscape Partnership, led by the Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity and  The Greensand Trust, and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It is made possible by National Lottery players; without them we couldn’t fund the project.
