We are now over half way through this year’s season of courses. The latest course was blessed with some lovely weather at last as well as a lovely mixture of people taking part including: A woman receiving her course place for her 65th birthday present. A couple making a ‘his and hers’ chair. A father who brought along his son to help with seating the chair on the final day. We are still progressing in developing seat patterns, this week most people choosing Danish cord, in some cases combined with cedar bark.
For the remaining courses this year we have just one place available from 28th August to 2nd September, when we should be harvesting blackberries from the edge of the woods and apples from our garden, so expect a few delicious crumbles and pies baked in the woodland oven.
You can also find 3 new films that have just been uploaded onto you Tube which give a flavour of what you might expect on a course – more to follow this winter.
