Working Woodlands Project

The Working Woodlands project aims to protect, enhance and promote the woodlands of the Greensand Ridge for their biodiversity, heritage and recreational value, their role in the landscape, as providers of ecosystem services, and as part of the rural economy.

Main objectives of the project are to:

  • better understand our local woodlands, their importance, the challenges they face and possible solutions
  • raise awareness of the importance of our local woodlands and their management and encourage people to visit and enjoy them responsibly
  • promote the beneficial and sustainable management of our local woodlands
  • continue to develop the Working Woodlands Centre as a base for training, education and visiting Maulden Wood, and as a focus for woodland initiatives on the Greensand Ridge

Are you interested in learning the skills to carve your own wooden spoon?  You don't need much to make a spoon - a lump of wood, some sharp tools, focussed time and some know how – that's where this workshop comes in!

Using only three traditional tools – the carving axe, straight craft knife and curved spoon knife - David Yule of nothinglikewood will guide you in the safe use of these tools to create your own wooden spoon to take home! You can find out more about David and his wood carving on his Instagram page.

  • Taking place at The Working Woodlands Centre, Maulden Wood, Haynes West End MK45 3UZ on Friday 19th November 10am - 4pm (arrive from 9.30am)
  • All tools and materials provided
  • Bring a snack and your own hot drink (if required) as we are not providing lunch
