Anyone, young and old, interested in trying their hand and learning more about traditional woodland crafts should head down to Dinton Pastures Country Park in Hurst this month to take part free workshops.

From Monday October 28 to Friday November 1, between 10am to 4pm, residents of all ages will be able to try their hand at carving timber, peeling bark, cleaving chestnut poles and assembling wood structures under the expert tuition of Touch Wood Enterprises.

Davies White Landscape Architects and Wokingham Borough Council are working together to create a new Nature Play Space at Dinton Pastures that features many of the skills that residents will be able to try their hands at.

The free sessions last approximately one hour and will be supervised by qualified and trained carpenters. Residents are advised to wear sturdy boots and suitable clothing, everything else will be provided.

More from Chris Buggy, Wokingham Borough Council countryside coordinator, on (0118) 934 2016.
