91 Dorset Coppice Group
Traditional and contemporay woodland coppice crafts
The Living Classroom is run by the Dorset Coppice Group. It comprises an area of approximately 30 acres of mixed, broadleaved woodland known as Bonsley. In 1999 a number of the Dorset woodsmen decided that a local group was needed to help promote their services and products.
Members include (among others) wood turners, hurdle makers, basket makers, chair makers, charcoal makers, green woodworkers, stick makers, forest school activities and pyrography artists. Our off-grid venue is based in the beautiful ancient Bonsley Wood.
Over the two weeks there will be demos, displays and classes, please check our website for details.
