Find out more about bygone woodcrafts

Thursday 8th February 2018

The county’s largest nature conservation charity is giving people the chance to find out more about a skill from a bygone age at a series of special woodcraft events.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is working with three of its members to deliver ‘Bygone Woodcraft’ sessions at its Wolseley Centre headquarters, near Rugeley.

The events give people the chance to come and view traditional woodcrafts and take the opportunity to speak to crafters and purchase their hand crafted items.

Sam Pachner, Events and Fundraising Officer at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, said: “The common goal of these members is to inform, educate and demonstrate the fact that not only are these crafts still relevant in today’s world, but they also help conserve and improve our native woodlands and natural habitats.

“They are all committed to ensuring our woodlands are preserved for future generations while demonstrating that traditional crafts can still produce products which are beautiful in their own right but also sustainable, environmentally friendly and relevant.”

The sessions take place on Sundays 15th April, 20th May, 17th June, 15th July, 19th August, 16th September and 21st October.
