Learn a traditional skill by having a go at using a draw knife and a shave horse to create traditional riven ash sheep hurdles. One-hour sessions – at Hay Castle, outdoors on the lawn
This workshop is for people who are interested in sustainable woodland management and would like to know how to make valuable products from coppiced and other woodland materials.
You’ll learn several skills such as using a shave horse, billhook and draw knife to de-bark, riven and cleave timber and will construct the gates from prepared wood. This taster workshop follows our Introduction to Coppicing course in February and our Making a Split Hazel Hurdle course from May.
You should book a ticket for the time you would like to ensure you receive the spot you want. Drop-ins are welcome and you are also welcome to stay on for a second session providing there is room!
