Take part in Part 2 of Introduction to Coppicing course! Learn how to use tools and create products from the material you’ve coppiced. This is a follow-on course from our Part 1 course from January, but you do not need to have attended Part 1 to join us!
Session 1 was an introduction, and this session (2) is slightly more advanced. You can book on one or both of the sessions.
A great way to see what BMC have to offer, come along to have a go if you’re interested in learning a new trade, want to learn more about woodworking or want to gain an insight into our 1-year long NVQ course – Level 2 in Coppicing & Greenwood Trades before committing!
This course is for woodland group members, people with larger gardens or wooded areas and those with an interest in learning how to manage woodlands sustainably.
Coppicing is an ancient technique using low impact, hands-on ways of processing timber at the same time helping with biodiversity by creating different habitats as the tree regrows. The course forms a two-part learning experience.
