Coppicewood College

Description

Coppicewood College a force for sustainable good. Learn the traditional methods of woodland management and craft with us.

We offer a range of courses from one day to six months covering all aspects of sustainable ethical woodland skills. We teach in our own working woodland set in the beautiful Teifi Valley, near Cilgerran. Our Instructors have many years of experience between them and many of our students have gone on to create their own woodland based business.

We use hand tools such as felling axes, bill hooks and two-handed cross cut saws, etc, which we believe are the most efficient way to manage coppice. We insure that students become competent not only in their use but their maintenance. We offer low course fees and also bursaries to deserving students wishing to take our Woodland Skills Course. We also have a happy band of volunteers who meet every Wednesday supporting the college and enjoying working in a woodland setting. For full details visit the website.

There are many woodlands in the UK that are neglected. We believe that by passing on our skills and expertise many of these can be bought back into use providing essential materials for humans and a rich diversity for wildlife.
