Come along and enjoy woodworking and craft from the Hampshire Coppice Group. There will be a variety of traditional skills being demonstrated and handmade wooden artefacts to purchase. Standard entrance rates apply.
The group was set up in 2003 with the aim of supporting the work of coppice, underwood and associated craftsmen in Hampshire, as well as raising awareness of the benefits and opportunities they provide for woodlands and their wildlife, the landscape, rural employment and sustainable development. Group members take part in many demonstrations and shows throughout the year, demonstrating a wide range of traditional skills including hurdle, spar and walking stick making as well as pole lathe turning and charcoal burning. Since its inception HCCG has been actively promoting coppicing and associated crafts within Hampshire. The Coppice Craftsmens Group is also a member of Hampshire Fare who promote local producers of food, drink and crafts based in Hampshire.
