Wood Products Workshop, Argyll

7th March - 8th March

Wood Products Workshop
Blarbuie Woodland Enterprise
Lochgilphead, Argyll
Thursday 7th and Friday 8th March 2013
9.30am – 4.30pm

Synopsis:

CWA has teamed up with the Big Tree Society and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to deliver a 2 day workshop which will be practical, informative, challenging and fun. Participants will explore the route from woodland to workshop, possible ways to market and review learning and identify what’s next for you, your woodland.


Workshop Objective:
The objective of this intensive two day workshop is to examine the planning, processes, prototyping, production, preparation and presentation of a small timber product from community woodlands to consumer.


This workshop is for people involved in Community Woodlands who enjoy making wood craft products and who would like to develop a strategy for their woodland.


Thursday 7th March - Resource management and product development
The workshop is based both indoors and outside. Day 1 will cover assessing and identifying resources using Blarbuie Woods as a working example. Based on resource assessment and potential markets participants will develop a prototype product.


Friday 8th March - Markets
Day 2 includes more practical experience as well as identifying markets, brand development and marketing techniques. The workshop will finish with a review and action planning session.


Led by Eoin Cox, the Big Tree Society workshop leaders collectively have over fifty years experience of working in the woods and forests, coppicing and making furniture and other woodland products. They bring with them a very hands-on teaching technique where the pieces produced are often the by-product of the workshop days. Participants will go away engaged, fulfilled and confident to learn more and share that practical knowledge of the woodland resource with their own groups.
