With John Carnell of 1066 Sussex Trugs, Hastings (sales via Carnell’s of Castle Cary)
Learn the secrets of hand-crafting traditional steamed Sussex Garden trugs made of ‘cricket bat’ Willow and Sweet Chestnut under the instruction of a traditional Sussex trug maker.
You will cleave the timber, shape panels, frame and handle with a drawknife, then steam the Chestnut and soak the Willow before assembling your trug with copper nails. This is a very special and rarely seen course which employs only hand tools and where you will construct your trug from tree to finish.
All tools are provided and the group will be small, no experience is necessary.
