Greenwood course dates released for 2021

May Hill woodlands has teamed up with Maurice Clother of Touch wood, to deliver a varied program of greenwood courses at May Hill. Courses will be held in the woodlands around the scouts field campsite, and include spoon and spatula making, milking stools, carving tree spirits, pole lathing and more.

For the full program of 2021 courses, go to:

These skills have been in practice for hundreds of years, and rely on simple hand tools and  instruments. They are crafts which can be made in the breeze while listening to the sound of the woods, while you whittle, lathe or draw knife away….all in the company of others and under the skilled tuition of Maurice.

In a world full of stuff, give someone an experience this Christmas by buying them a greenwood course in 2021!
