Each year, the Coppice Association North West runs a weekend of traditional craft workshops aimed at both beginners and improvers. Workshops are led by experienced, professional tutors and run from 10am ‘til 4pm each day. Some workshops carry a small, additional charge for materials, payable to the tutors at the end of the course.
Workshops include: charcoal-making, stick-making, making cleft oak gates, oak swill basket-making, spoon-carving, willow basket and creel-making, making leather sheaths/holsters for tools.
Location: Staveley-in-Cartmel, Newby Bridge.
Cost: Members - £95, Non-members £105 (Vegetarian lunches, Saturday's evening meal and refreshments during the workshops are included in the fee).
Accommodation: Camping in the woods, or B&Bs nearby.
