Established in 2006, Coppicewood College is a small educational charity dedicated to the promotion of traditional woodland management through sustainable methods, which includes coppicing and the use of hand tools.
The Main focus of the College is the woodland Skills 6-month course which offers the unique opportunity to experience coppicing and woodland skills throughout the entire coppicing season. The college also offers short courses in coppicing, willow weaving, hedge-laying and green woodworking.
In recent years, staff and volunteers at the college have been involved in the building of a Schoolroom, Pole lathe shelter and compost toilet. These are now complete, giving us excellent facilities whatever the weather.
Once a week the college has a volunteer day which is open to anyone keen to get involved with woodland conservation. Working alongside the staff and students, volunteers are an important element in the restoration of the 13 acre broadleaf woodland which is laying down the foundations for a coppice rotation system and creating a diverse plant and wildlife habitat.
Coppicewood colleges affordable courses cover all aspects of coppice practice, hedgelaying and coppice craft in our own woodland in Cilgerran, Pembrokeshire.
