Sat 28th March, 11th July, 22nd Aug, 26th Sept 2020.

What’s involved in a Spoon Carving Course?

The spoon carving course will give you the perfect introduction to carving. You will learn how to use an axe, and a variety of knives safely and effectively.  We will start the day with a log and end the day with a spoon that you will be able to use in your kitchen forever.  Hopefully, it will be the first of many.  As well as carving technique we will discuss wood choice and sharpening.

What’s included?

We will supply you with everything you need for a day of carving.  This includes top quality tools and all the wood you will need. A hearty homemade vegetarian lunch, tea/coffee and snacks will be provided.

There is one off special spoon carving fundraiser on Sat 20th June (all proceeds going towards the Coppicewood College building fund) with David in the Forest Garden at Moylegrove, participants will also get the royal tour of the garden with owner Bruce Slark, and catering for the whole day provided by Coppicewood’s legendary chef Gill Davies. Suggested cost is £100 but you may want to give more! Covered workshop in case of rain.

Coppicewood College is on the move

As our current lease expires in June 2022 we have been looking for an alternative woodland to operate in and we are delighted to announce that we will be taking up residence on a 25 year lease in Pengelli woods an SSSI woodland with a particular rare habitat for Dormice.

Its great news but as part of the process we are building a new workshop which will cost around £40,000. We have already found £20,000 but we need to fund raise to reach the balance so any help you can provide by donating to us we would be most grateful.This will allow us to continue to provide our unique and valuable woodland management training well into the future.
