We also offer more intensive instruction during the week, working alongside a craftsman within a real work situation. Our aim is to provide greater one-to-one tuition with no more than 2 or 3 students.
Such in-depth tuition allows us to pursue the finer details of the craft, from the harvesting and selection of the raw materials to the final finishing techniques and the product`s end use. We would cover everything from start to finish, including tool sharpening and maintenance, how to overcome specific problems, cover techniques to a greater depth than is possible on a weekend course, and to the installation of the final product. Many of the crafts we cover in this way are seasonal, so we advise you contact us well in advance to ensure we can accommodate you.
Activities we cover include hedgelaying, coppicing, cleft or riven fencing, gate hurdles and wattle hurdles.
We aim to be adaptable to your specific requirements and to be flexible on the number of days you spend with us. Each day with us can run consecutively or be spaced out over a number of weeks.
Prices start at £90.00 a day and may vary according to your exact requirements. Please phone to discuss things further.
