Bent Hazel Furniture with tutor Alan Dean. Everyone went home with a chair, table, or stool, and we all learned how versatile Hazel can be.

Green Woodworking with tutor Martin Huxter. Martin showed us what variety there is in different woods. He brought his collection of achievements in woodworking. The pole lathe was essential and home made too.

Hedgerow Herbal given by tutor Nikki Hiscock. How much can we gather from the natural hedgerows to eat and use for herbal remedies?

Any events and courses that run usually end up with a Picnic by the pond - with a good time had by all.

There are many courses we can hold - let us know what your interests are and we'll sort it out !
