Greenwood Days

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

Their 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.
