Woodland craft courses

Update 7th January 2021

Greenwood Days is not running courses at present while we are in lockdown but we still have plenty of courses available to book on for later in 2021 as well as 1-1 days and special event days.

We are carefully monitoring the Covid situation and your safety is our priority. We have all procedures in place to make our outdoor workshop as safe as possible for when we reopen with smaller numbers on each workshop, plenty of space for distancing and of course under cover but very much outside.

At present we are hoping that lockdown will be eased by the end of March which will allow us to run our courses from then but as with 2020 if the situation changes we will postpone courses till later in the year. Each course will be rescheduled and you’ll have a secure place on the rearranged date.

Click through to the courses pages for our 2021 course list and to reserve a space.

 If you have any concerns or questions, please call us on 07946163860 or send an email to

We will continue to closely monitor the situation, please be assured that the safety and welfare of our students and tutors is our highest priority.
Many thanks for your understanding during these extraordinary times.

Greenwood Days have been running woodland craft courses since 1998. The course centre is set in a beautiful 90 acre wood in the National Forest on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border. We offer day, weekend, midweek and week long courses ranging from traditional Windsor chairmaking to contemporary willow sculpture, longbow making to spoon carving.

Our tutors are all highly skilled professional craft workers and teachers who share our passion for preserving, promoting and passing on these crafts and techniques. Come and enjoy the beauty of the woodland, book on one of our many courses, be inspired, be creative, learn a new craft.
