Traditional woodland craft courses (we also include green woodworking and greenwood crafts in this section) are increasing in the UK. Traditional woodland craft can also be known as ‘woodmanship’ and means working with trees, forests and tools in a way that communities going back thousands of years would recognise. These wood-loving ancestors of ours may have been the first true conservationists, working their resources in a way that was renewable and sustainable, not only preserving trees, but enhancing the richness of the surrounding wildlife. Traditional craft and green wood workshops in this section will generally involve woodwork without the use of nails and screws - and with a focus on hand tools. Think rustic!
