Green woodworking courses

At Redwood Valley Woodland Cabin & Yurts

Come and immerse yourself in the beautiful woodlands of the Welsh Marches and learn how to make a chair, from tree to finished product. The woodland workshop is located in a magical ancient oak woodland, surrounded by bluebells in spring. 

The courses are held at the Redwood Valley Eco Retreat, a wonderful yurt and cabin camping site near the market town of Presteigne.

You'll be taken through every step of the process, from selecting and felling a tree through to crafting your final piece. This video gives a little taster of what you can expect:

A simple lunch and basic materials are included in the course price. Some additional charges ranging from £10-30 may be applicable for materials such as elm planks, bark or cord for seating.

For accommodation, you can either book a special stay in one of the site's comfortable yurts or beautiful treetop cabin, or stay at the nearby campsite. Alternatively, a wide selection of B&Bs can be found in the area. Discounts are available for combined course and yurt/cabin bookings.
