It isn't anywhere near us, but the idea of a skill share is a good one, and one we have had in the coppice sector for some time. We went to the Surrey and Sussex Coppice Group skill share last Saturday and I managed to get a better idea of how to split hazel for baskets. There were lots of other craft skills on offer too. Hampshire Coppice Craftsmen's Group had one as part of our AGM in April, but being our first it was just for members this time. A great idea.
