Hedgelaying Weekend for Beginners - 2-day course
About the event
You will learn the old language associated with this art at the same time as laying your piece of hedgerow in the local Midland style. You will be using mainly hand tools such as axes and bill-hooks though some modern tools such as bow saws and loppers may be used occasionally.
We will provide all the tools that you need but if you have any hedge-laying tools bring them along. They may be useful.
This is a very practical course so stout footwear and rough gardening clothes are recommended plus waterproofs. A peaked cap can be very useful too.
Bring your own refreshments including plenty of water to drink.
Please note: If the weather becomes particularly bad on either day and we judge it is unsafe to use the tools, the course may finish ahead of schedule.
