This  gathering of England’s finest coppice craftsmen from six counties is taking place  between 11th and 15th August at Broadstone Warren on Ashdown forest.  It’s a great opportunity to enjoy an insight into the fascinating world of making traditional products from coppiced woodlands. Many of the tutors still make their living from producing these products and all of them have gathered this week to teach their skills to others.

Come and watch, or sign up and learn how to do it.

Contact Jo Waters for more information, all  details are available on the flyer downloadable from here.  (substantial discounts are available for people working in the industry, or living in the High Weald AONB).

Camping is available, but please bring all your own gear, wet weather clothing, boots and food and drink.
