Woodland craft courses

Update on Courses at Greenwood Days 21-03-2020

After looking at the current Government guidelines, we have taken the decision to postpone at least the April/early May’s courses until we are advised otherwise.
While the course centre is outdoors which means a low-risk environment, with low participation numbers, it is irresponsible to ask people to travel from different parts of the country for a course when we are supposed to be avoiding social contact.
I know this is a great disappointment but we will reschedule courses for later in the year. Students who have booked places already, you’re place will be ready for you when we can restart the courses. If you were thinking of booking onto a course, please do, it supports and helps the tutors and Greenwood Days, if more courses have to be rescheduled you’ll not ‘miss out’, you’ll have a place on a course at a later date.
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 and the safety and welfare of you and our 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.
