Coppicing Workshop: An Introduction to Woodland Management
As part of a dynamic programme of events to complement our current exhibition ‘The Land We Live In – The Land We Left Behind’, we are delighted to welcome Greg Power from the Wild Resources team, who will be sharing his extensive knowledge of woodland management in this special one-day workshop. This is a unique opportunity to learn traditional skills using hand tools including saws and axes. You will be taught fail safe techniques to coppice woodland that will benefit both you and the environment. A series of photographs documenting your work and its progress will be sent to you in the Spring. These photos will show what your hard work has created in the coupe.
All equipment will be provided for the day. You will need to bring with you:
Clothing appropriate for the weather (e.g. waterproofs, wellies, warm layers)
Notebook and/or camera (if required)
