Heritage Skills: Charcoal-making

Explore the art and science of charcoal-making with this practical hands-on course. We cover all aspects from woodland management and timber selection to processing and marketing the charcoal. Over the two days we will be producing charcoal in a steel ring-kiln, back-garden barrel-burns, a traditional (but minature) earth-clamp and a biscuit tin!. Expect to get mucky!

Location: Force Knott Wood, Satterthwaite. Cost: £14
