Weird and Wonderful Wood has become an annual experience not to be missed - a specialist event with a difference dealing solely in wood for those with a capacity for wonder; a celebration of many aspects of woodwork and woodworkers.

www.woodworkersinstitute.com

There will be over 100 artists and craftspeople with demonstrations including carving and sculpture, fine furniture making, musical instrument making, displays by traditional fletchers and bowyers, chainsaw carving, wheelwrighting, hurdle making, woodturning, pole lathe turning, as well as traditional gypsy caravan displays. There will be a working mobile sawmill on site, so if you want to bring your own tree, it can be cut for you!

Workshops, for both adults and children are free and include activities such as archery, willow weaving, withy work, paper making, gypsy flower making, pole lathe turning, scrap wood, puppet making, jewellery making, den building, and Monkey-Do tree climbing.

It's a friendly, relaxed and somewhat extraordinary event with something for all the family. Allow time to enjoy a wealth of excellent local food and drink, including a licensed bar.
