The Wonder of Wood
Greenwood wood working experience for two. Visit this premier event on September 11th or 12th, 2021 as a guest of the National Hedge Laying Society’s 2018 Supreme Champion, Tim Radford.
The Wonder of Wood showcases some of the region’s finest wood workers, crafters and artisans, and their ethos is to introduce children to the joys of engaging with nature, and to entice them away from screen time and back into the great outdoors.
From willow weaving to artisan carpentry, den building to spoon carving, survival skills to tree surgery, plus plenty more, this is a great weekend out. Get the children involved in the many woodland activities that will be on offer such as survival skills, pond dipping and den building, find out more about the magical fenland wildlife, and listen to captivating stories from our storyteller. There will be plenty of opportunity to marvel at wood workers creating things of beauty in front of your very eyes, and you can even try your hand at these wonderful crafts yourself… You can also get some advice on top fruit growing, and there will be trees and bushes for sale from Andy Howard of the Heritage Fruit Tree Co. Not only this, but there will be locally produced food and drink on hand to ensure you don’t go hungry or thirsty, as well as live music from local folk musicians.
Your lot also offers the opportunity to then put your inspiration into practice with your choice of a day’s coppicing, hedgelaying or willow weaving instruction on the Shuttleworth Estate.
