June 24th/25th. Charcoal making.
Pure alchemy! The art of converting assorted pieces of wood into charcoal. We’ll manage a burn in a big ring kiln as well as in 45 gallon oil drums and we’ll take you through the whole process of stacking, lighting and closing down a burn. You should leave with a fine bag of barbecue charcoal, some artists drawing charcoal, lots of experience – and very dirty!
£145 for the weekend, camping on site. Accomodation: for most of my courses, camping is available at our Yard just north of Tetbury. Here you will find a composting toilet and cold running water (luxury!); a covered Camp Kitchen, some sleeping platforms in the roof of one of our buildings and some space for camper vans or tents.
