Wood Fair

  

Charcoal burning, willow weaving, pit sawing, oak joinery, crafts, demonstrations, talks, walks, games and more: yes, South Brent Wood Fair is back!

This free, family-friendly community event takes place from 10am-5pm at and around South Brent Village Hall. Organised and run by the hedges and woodland group of Sustainable South Brent, the Fair aims to celebrate our local trees and woodlands and all their rich wildlife, culture, traditions, enterprises, crafts and skills. There will be stalls, exhibitions, workshops, guided walks, music, story-telling, poetry, children’s activities, plus delicious food and a bar. Meet local craftsmen and women at work, talk to wood-workers and wood-related businesses, view displays by Devon Rural Skills Trust, Devon Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust, Forestry Commission, Orchard Link, Moor Trees, Dartmoor National Park Authority and more. Those feeling adventurous can have a go at craft activities including using shave-horses, a pole-lathe, spoon carving and willow work. There will be talks and stories on a whole range of topics: woodland livelihoods, ecology, energy systems, and what it takes to restore ancient woodland on Dartmoor.
