Description

In a new course for 2020, Alistair Hayhurst will show you how to weave with hazel. Through the day you’ll learn how to split the hazel in half along it’s length and basic weaving techniques. While doing this you’ll weave a small panel that can be used as a screen in your garden or on a patio. Alistair has been working in the coppice industry both making and teaching for over 20 years. Greenwood Days have been running woodland craft courses since 1998. The course centre is set in a beautiful 90 acre wood in the National Forest on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border.  Our tutors are all highly skilled professional craft workers and teachers who share our passion for preserving, promoting and passing on these crafts and techniques. Come and enjoy the beauty of the woodland, be inspired, be creative, learn a new craft.
