CPD Visit to CANW Working Woodlands Exhibition at Farfield Mill, Sedbergh
After a frosty night camping out at a farm nearby, Heather Cook, Millie and I visited the Working Woodlands Exhibition at Sedbergh to see the Coppice Association’s products and to take part in the workshops.
The exhibition went across three floors of Farfield Mill and included a huge variety of woodland crafts from gypsy flowers, spoons and small items through to a double bed, full sized boat and a kitchen all made from green wood.
There was a demonstration of hazel hurdles and a workshop making gypsy flowers.
The exhibition included art based on a woodland theme. I was blown away by the quality and creativity in the pieces and I’m really looking forward to practicing making trug baskets and stick chairs at the Weekend in the Woods in May. We both felt totally inspired and in awe of the skills demonstrated.
The exhibition is open at Farfield Mill until the end of April.
