Nene Coppicing & Crafts at Sacrewell
We now have a residency at Sacrewell, where we have a small workshop next to the blacksmith. Initially we will be there demonstrating willow work and green woodworking on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month.
If you are down on the farm, please drop by for a chat, or why not have a go yourself?
Our usual courses run regularly but unfortunately are postponed until further notice due to the COVID pandemic. Below is an idea of what is usually on offer:
Full day course from 10.00am to 4.30pm, making a rustic three-legged stool. The course is ideal for anyone from absolute beginners to experienced woodworkers who would like to learn green woodworking skills.
Refreshments are provided, but you will need to bring your own lunch or you can visit the Origin8 Cafe on site.
Willow doorstop workshop
Full day course from 10.00am to 4.30pm, making a willow doorstop. This is a great course for learning basic basketry techniques and you will produce a beautiful and unusual item, perfect as a Christmas gift (if you can bear to part with it).
