Countryside Skills: Coppicing
Have a go at this traditional woodland craft. Spend a day learning the practical techniques of coppicing and looking at how this benefits the biodiversity of woodland.
- Booking essential
Starting with a short walk we'll chat about traditional woodland management, coppice products and biodiversity. After a cup of tea, you'll learn how to coppice hazel and then it will be time to have a go yourself. There will be plenty of time to hone your skills, learn techniques and use different tools like billhooks and axes. You can also make peasticks and beanpoles, for your garden or products for hedgelaying. Lunch and hot drinks are provided for the day.
