Coppicing Crafts Exhibition at Farfield Mill
The Working Woodlands event "The story of coppice"
held at Farfield Mill, Sedbergh, was held in 2012 as a celebration
of the north west's coppicing heritage. Well due to its popularity we will be
exhibitingagain with more work this April and May.
We've created a new page all about the traditional Earthburn method of making charcoal.
With thanks to Brian Crawley for organising this and writing about it, to the students of the Merz Summer School who created the video, and of course to Jim Miller for all the hard work!
