Just two weeks left to discover and take part in the Coppice Association’s Working Woodlands: the story of coppice – a celebration of coppicing at Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre, near Sedbergh, Cumbria (5 miles from M6, J37).
Read all about how coppicing benefits woodland and wildlife, then discover some amazing things made from coppiced wood – a double bed, a replica Irish currach, even a fitted kitchen! – alongside many smaller items, all for sale. You can also have a go yourself, during daily demonstrations of coppice crafts such as wood turning, basket-weaving and hurdle-making.
Complementing the hands-on activities and 3-D pieces is a large display of woodland-inspired paintings and prints by well-known artists from the North West, including Tina Balmer, Sally Bamber, Fiona Clucas, Judy Evans, Brian Fareday, Richard Foster, Martin Greenland, Laura Pendlebury, Eva Ullrich, Charley Whinney, Beverley White, Alan Stones, Rebecca Payne and Janette Phillips.
