One of our judges, the BBC’s Faye Hatcher, said: “Nice story telling techniques. Interesting facts and sound effects. Simple but effective. Gentle watch”.

And another judge Megan Titley of the SNJ said: “Great topic dramatic nice ‘hand-made’ feel nice interviews with good quotes made me want to do the course.”

Stroud-based Wholewoods ran this course in October 2015 at Westonbirt Arboretum.  Participants learned the almost lost art of how to cut down large trees using traditional axes and two-person crosscut saws (i.e. without a chainsaw).  Tutor – Adrian Leaman of wholewoods.co.uk where you can book a place for this and other practical woodland and building skills courses.
