Scribe Log Building Training (x2)

28th October - 6th November

Morvern Community Woodlands Company invites you to join them for a 3 day Essential forestry skills: Scribe Log Building course in the Morvern peninsula, led by professional log builder Alan Mackintosh.

This learning and networking opportunity is aimed at members of community woodland groups who are interested in undertaking log building projects. Participants will be contributing towards creating a community space and toolstore for the new Lochaline allotments project, led by the Morvern Community Development Company.

The objectives of the course are:
• To encourage networking between community woodland groups
• To teach you the skills and knowledge to enable you to create a building using logs.

The course is hands-on and will be working on the construction of a 6.5 x 6.5m community building on the edge of Lochaline village using Sitka logs sourced from the local Barr forest. Trainees must be able to commit to 3 days work to make sure that the building can be finished following the series of training workshops.

The course is aimed at beginner and intermediate level log builders (more experienced people also welcome). Participants should be competent with a chainsaw (i.e. regular chainsaw users, preferably having attended an industry approved ‘maintenance and cross-cutting course’ or higher level).

These 2 courses are part funded by the Community Woodlands Association and will be held on 28/29/30 October 2011 and 4/5/6 November 2011.

There are 6 places available for each 3 day course. Places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

An additional course in turf roofing will be held in February 2012 (dates to be confirmed) – an opportunity to come back to help finish the structure!

The Cost of each 3 day course is £60 per person, payable on booking to reserve your place. This includes lunches, teas and coffees.
