Charcoal Making Workshop

14 May 2016  10:00 - 16:00
Learn how to make your own charcoal - with just a few basic tools and some simple equipment, you can learn how to make your own charcoal at a workshop run by the Dartmoor-based Sustainable Coppice Partnership on Saturday, 14 May. Suitable for people of all ages and abilities, the one-day course takes place in the Partnership’s beautiful “outdoor classroom” based in heritage coppice woodland near Yelverton. Charcoal takes a while to “cook”, so this special working woodland event includes learning how to make fun things out of greenwood from the hazel found in the coppice. There’s a chance, too, to help build a traditional “dead hedge” for wildlife and woodland management. “Whether you’re a young enthusiast or an old hand,” says Project Manager, Dr Tean Mitchell, “we’re sure you will enjoy yourself and have a wonderful day in the woods. The bluebells will probably be in full flower too, making a wonderful display of Britain’s favourite wild flower.” Everybody gets to take home a bag of the charcoal. Use it for this summer’s barbeques or just to put it on your garden as an organic soil conditioner.
Location  Yelverton  Booking: Yes  Charge: The cost of the workshop is £55 per person which includes all tools, protective wear, insurance and, of course, tea and cake for everyone.
